September 11 – Jubilee Voices at Marietta Mansion

Remembering the Ancestors & Pursuing Liberty with Jubilee Voices

The Washington Revels Jubilee Voices joins Prince George’s County Parks & Recreation at Marietta House Museum for Echoes of the Enslaved: The Pursuit of Liberty.

On Saturday, September 11, Jubilee Voices will offer an in-person performance celebrating the enslaved community of Marietta. The event also commemorates all those who were lost 20 years ago during the terrorist attacks at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and on Flight 93.

Following Jubilee Voices’ concert, stay for “The Public Archaeology Experience” at 1 pm and process real artifacts that were discovered in the areas where enslaved families once lived. And to maximize your time at this event, head to Marietta Mansion on the evening of September 10 for a town-hall discussion, conversations around the campfire, and an optional overnight camping experience — then wake up with Jubilee Voices!

Echoes of the Enslaved is a unique, two-day commemoration that highlights decades of archaeological discoveries and addresses the lasting legacies of chattel slavery in Prince George’s County.
