The Black-Centered Origins of Juneteenth
Thursday, June 17 | noon - 1:30 p.m.
For many non-Black folks, Juneteenth seemed to burst into the national consciousness over the last few years, but for many Black folks, Juneteenth has been a day of celebration for generations. For this lecture, join AJ in looking at some historical factors that led to the proclamation made on June 19th, 1865, in Galveston, Texas. Together, we will look at the players working to prevent the freedom of millions of enslaved folks and examples of Black folks being active participants in their liberation. We will learn the importance of the declaration made on June 19th and how information has been used as a weapon to keep folks enslaved well into the 20th century. Black people have never been passive. Let's honor those who walked and ran uphill to get us to where we are today.
