Lunch & Learn: What is Juneteenth?

Join us as we share the historical importance of Juneteenth. Juneteenth was first recognized as a city holiday in 2020 and is now also a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Africans. It is also often observed for celebrating Black culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865.

This event will be facilitated by Nichole Rogers from the Office of Black Community Engagement. Learners will engage in dialogue and activities to better understand the history of the holiday, and its importance in racial and social justice work.
