Step Afrika! returns to the virtual theater to commemorate Juneteenth (June 19, 1865) as the day that federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to ensure that all enslaved people were freed, two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Premiering three unique works, Trane, Little Rock Nine and The Movement; Step Afrika!’s virtual celebration honors and embodies the determination, resilience, and reclamation of freedom with newly filmed choreographic masterpieces inspired by the African American experience.
