Washington Revels Jubilee Voices Concerts

The Washington Revels Jubilee Voices ensemble is committed to the preservation of African American history and traditions–presenting songs and stories of struggle and perseverance, trials, and triumphs, as expressed through a cappella music, drama, and dance. Established in 2010, the group now performs regularly throughout the Washington DC area, singing, sharing, and learning the stories of the people in those communities.

Story Time with Young Historians

The book publishers have generously allowed the museum to post Story Time videos through the end of June, 2021. Each video features a picture book that introduces history and promotes diversity for young readers. A Museum Educator provides historical context and local community connections. New videos were released the first Tuesday of every month.
