Juneteenth: What’s It All About?
June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Today, Americans around the country will celebrate Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating June 19, 1865 and the ending of slavery in Texas, which was the last state to officially free slaves. This year, the annual celebration of freedom comes as the country grapples with its long-standing history of systemic racism, as well as the fate of its Confederate monuments, flags and symbols amid nationwide protests against police brutality and racism after the death of George Floyd. Join a conversation with three top political analysts on Friday at 2 PM ET to learn more.
This event is from Jewish Federations of North America.
