Produced one year after the official failure of Reconstruction—the withdrawal of federal troops from the South—Homer’s challenging subject evokes both the dislocation and endurance of African American culture that was a legacy of slavery. The central figure represents a Jonkonnu character, a Christmas holiday celebration once observed by enslaved blacks in Virginia and North Carolina. Rooted in the culture of the British West Indies, the festival blended African and English traditions. After the Civil War, aspects were incorporated into African American Independence Day celebrations, to which the painting’s original title, Sketch—4th of July in Virginia, referred.
