What is the story of Juneteenth?

We will discuss this specifically African-American celebration of joy and Black Freedom and discuss lengthier histories of inclusion and community. This conversation will be an opportunity for us to learn how Black Americans have stepped into freedom and how we can learn from and respectfully observe these struggles as they continue today.
