Today-
At 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16, the Ocean City Arts Center will present Karen “Queen Nur” Abdul-Malik in an early celebration and commemoration of Juneteenth in the Chris Maloney Lecture Hall of the Ocean City Public Library, 1735 Simpson Avenue, Ocean City. It is free and open to the public.

The program begins with a story honoring ancestors and Queen Nur’s telling that story at Elmina Castle in Ghana. The journey continues in celebration of resilience and resistance through the “knowing” of the right to freedom that was expressed in the hushes and hollers as coded messages through songs, chants, field hollers. The performance renders a powerful story of Henry Box Brown and leads us to the story of the writing of the emancipation and the 2.5-year delay in its reaching Galveston Texas on June 19, 1865. Storytelling is intertwined with African drumming, including a log drum (the first drum made in Africa), slit gongs and cajons.

Queen Nur is a nationally renowned storyteller, teaching artist and folklorist. Karen “Queen Nur” Abdul-Malik from Willingboro, is one of the five South Jersey recipients of New Jersey State Council of the Arts’ inaugural New Jersey Heritage Fellowships. This program is made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
