Test your black history knowledge while raising funds for a good cause with a Juneteenth trivia fundraiser at Weeskville Heritage Center.
Assemble your savviest team on Wednesday, June 12 and compete through five rounds of trivia on topics ranging from geography to music. In celebration of Juneteenth, the questions will be drawn from the vast diaspora of the black experience.
Juneteenth historically marks the abolition of slavery in Texas on June 19, 1865, but has evolved into a national celebration of African American freedom and achievement. Weeksville is an important part of Brooklyn’s own heritage of achievement and the event is part of the fundraising campaign to keep the endangered site open in the midst of financial challenges.
Tickets for the event are $10 per person, with all proceeds going to support the historic site. The event takes place at Weeksville Heritage Center at 158 Buffalo Avenue in Crown Heights on Wednesday, June 12 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets visit the event page here.
