Featuring Dr. Scot Brown ’89, distinguished author and associate professor of African American Studies and History at UCLA, we will recognize the celebration of Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

This special program will explore the historical context of Juneteenth, the importance of Black cultural wealth, the evolution of emancipation, and the expanded notion of freedom. In recognition of the celebration, the University of Rochester Black Alumni Network will host this event honoring the traditions and practices of persons of African descent.

Presented by the Office of Alumni Relations and Constituent Engagement in partnership with the Black Alumni NetworkDiversity Advisory Council, and the Office of Equity and Inclusion
