JAZZ & POETRY EVENT: Juneteenth Celebration
June 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Between 1670 and 1820 more than 200 enslaved African American and indigenous people labored in the historic town of Lyme. Today, Witness Stones along Lyme Street mark former sites of enslavement and indentured servitude.
The Juneteenth celebration takes place on the grounds of the Museum and features music by the Nat Reeves Jazz Quartet and readings by the Witness Stones Poets Marilyn Nelson, Kate Rushin, Rhonda Ward, and Antoinette Brim-Bell who created a tribute in verse to those remembered with Lyme Street plaques.
Please bring lawn chairs for outdoor seating.
