Echoes of the Enslaved 2021: Public Archaeology and Performance by The Washington Revels Jubilee Voices

Saturday, September 11, 2021


Marietta House Museum was once the site where enslaved families lived and labored. Through archeology, we are preserving their stories through what they have left behind. We invite you to join us for our annual event Echoes of the Enslaved. Let’s celebrate, preserve, and honor the stories of those who once spent their lives here.

  • 10:30 am – 11:30 am – Performance by the Washington Revels Jubilee Voices
    • Saturday morning will feature an in-person performance by the Washington Revels Jubilee Voices ensemble to celebrate the enslaved community of Marietta and commemorate the people who were lost in the Twin Towers, at the Pentagon, and on Flight 93.

  • 1:00 pm – Public Archaeology Experience
    • Saturday afternoon will highlight the historical discoveries at Marietta and will include an in-person public archaeology experience where participants will process real artifacts that were discovered in the areas where enslaved families once lived.
