Jamestown Settlement presents an afternoon of reflection, performance, music and interpretive dance to mark the end of slavery in the United States. Although Juneteenth springs from events that happened in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, the event celebrates liberation from a system of slavery with origins in Jamestown, Va., where the first recorded Africans in 1619 were brought after landing at Old Point Comfort and where the first slave laws enacted in the mid-17th century impacted the lives and status of Africans and their descendants.
