Unexpected Virtual Tour: Juneteenth + Barbecue
Learn about the history of Juneteenth, Emancipation Day, and stories of what Atlanta and other important African American communities were like post-Emancipation in our LIVE Juneteenth Virtual Tour. This is an approachable and engaging way to learn about some of America's most forgotten history, including why barbecue is and always has been a celebration food. Tours are appropriate for children age 10+.
We are sold out of our Juneteenth ATL Treat Box. Sorry! Please order early if you are interested in our Street Art + Sweet Tea ATL Treat Box. We do sell out every time.
Our optional ATL Treat Box is a bit larger than usual because we are featuring TWO amazing treats from local African American entrepreneurs. For $19.99, you'll get the original AubSauce (a line of small batch, artisanal barbecue sauce), two Miss D's Pralines, a strawberry lemonade recipe, ideas for different ways to use your barbecue sauce, a crossword activity to be completed during the virtual tour, and a watercolor postcard of the King Memorial. And, as always, all of our ATL Treat Boxes include free shipping in the continental United States.
