June 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Juneteenth is a reminder of the chasm that persists between our nation’s founding promises and lived realities, and the holy resistance that has narrowed that gap. In this free event, we’ll celebrate the Black joy that fuels our fight for Black liberation. We’ll speak with movement elders, to give historical perspective for the present struggle, and community activists who are building the nation we deserve. And no celebration would be complete without music! So come ready to dance and sing: We’re freed by the love we plant together.
This teach-in is held in conjunction with the Freedom Rising Salons, a year-long conversation series that features thought leaders, organizers, artists and modern prophets reflecting on crucial justice issues, and what we all can do to rise and meet them.
