Summary:
This collection contains the audiovisual output of the Anacostia Community Museum's "Jubilee: African American Celebration" exhibition. The exhibition examines historical and contemporary African American holidays and celebrations from around the country. More than 50 holidays, celebratory traditions and occasions are presented in a season-based journey through a calendar year. Observances profiled include those no longer existing, ones created in response to significant events (such as Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation), regional favorites and black traditions associated with mainstream holidays. Also covered are leisure-time activities, college and church homecomings, black Greek organizations' events, family reunions and recent holidays like Kwanzaa and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The video recordings in this collection document New Orleans Mardi Gras celebrations and docent training for the exhibition.
