Juneteenth is an annual celebration of African Americans achieving emancipation. This year's event will feature a special performance from Sankofa Dance Theater Alaska, who blend dance, drumming, and song. 

Misha Baskerville and Kasha Smith-Poynter joined KTVA's Daybreak to explain the significance of the Juneteenth celebration. They then joined the other members of the company for a preview performance.

You can catch Sankofa Dance Theater Alaska on Saturday, June 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wilda Marsten Theater in Anchorage. For tickets, head to eventbrite.com
