There is something for all ages at the Jubilee Peace Fest!
Why “Jubilee”? Celebrating the end of the Civil War, more than fifty thousand people attended the National Peace Jubilee Concert in 1869 in Boston, Massachusetts. With the concert’s success, it was followed in 1872 with the World’s Peace Jubilee, another music event that marked the ending of the brutal Franco-Prussian War. Featured singers at this event were the Jubilee Singers from Fisk University, a predominately African American college located in southern United States. Starting in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Jubilee Singers went on a concert tour following the path of the underground railroad. Their persistent and triumphant journey inspired and captivated audiences unaccustomed to African American culture and freedom all across the country.
We jubilantly continue this tradition of celebration, forgiveness and peace with the Jubilee Peace Fest. More than a conference this gathering will celebrate, as in the past, a future where all are forgiven and all beings enslaved everywhere are happy and free once and for all.
