Let freedom ring.

Join us as we build an outdoor performing arts space in Southeast D.C. to honor the legacy of American abolitionists. This new carillon, ring of peal bells, amphitheater, and garden will stand in commemoration of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, with each of the bells named in honor of an abolitionist who worked to end slavery in America.
