As one of the most celebrated African American dance companies in the world, Step Afrika! engages the Juneteenth holiday as an opportunity to fortify its relationships in the communities it serves and to highlight Step Afrika!'s mission to preserve and promote the tradition of stepping. Each of the featured performances, filmed at meaningful landmarks around Washington, DC, honors the rhythm, spirituality and resistance of the African American community through dance and song.
