About this Event
Presented by the Office of Alumni Relations and Constituent Engagement, in partnership with the Black Alumni Network, Institutional Office of Equity and Inclusion and Diversity Advisory Council
Join Dr. Warren Crichlow ’92W (EdD) to reflect on the evolution and significance of June Nineteenth, now “Juneteenth.” Distinctive and complex with remembrance, this newly minted federal holiday symbolizes the past, present, and possible futures of the African American story amid today’s divisive politics and deepening public ambivalence.
Together, we’ll explore what it means to celebrate Juneteenth now, and look forward in the face of a moral reckoning.
This event is part of the University of Rochester monthly lecture and discussion series, REAL–Rochester's Equity & Access Leadership–Conversations. These virtual programs focus on authentic discussions featuring brave and candid dialogues around equity, measurable action, and meaningful change
