Abstract:
From the slave period until 1898, African Americans in Eastern North Carolina observed a Christmastime custom called Jonkonnu. The practice originated in Jamaica and spread to North Carolina, which was the only state where it was observed. Jonkonnu is a unique blend of West African and English customs. In 2000, the Christmas tradition was revived during New Bern's annual Holiday Candlelight Tours.
