Publisher/HostHistoric Oakland Cemetery
On Saturday, June 19, in commemoration of Juneteenth, Flux Projects will present Charmaine Minniefield’s Remembrance as Resistance: Preserving Black Narratives, honoring the unmarked graves in Oakland’s historic African American Burial Grounds
Through this project, Minniefield celebrates the Ring Shout, a traditional African American worship and gathering practice, whose origins in West African ritual and ceremony predate slavery. Minniefield explores evidence of its survival in contemporary dance, music, and spoken word as a testament to the resilience of a people.
Visitors to Oakland’s African American Burial Grounds can examine a replica of a Praise House, a small wooden structure used for worship. The Praise House will include a multimedia installation of the Ring Shout with video projections on the interior of the building and a sound installation emanating from the structure over the newly restored section of the Cemetery.

RESERVE YOUR VIEWING TIME AT EVENTBRITE (FREE)
To ensure the safety of audience members during COVID, a limited number of people will be admitted into the Praise House at a time, and masks will be required for entry. We encourage you to reserve a time for viewing online, since reservations will be prioritized over walkups.
