Join the Black Caucus as we commemorate and reflect on the meaning and symbolism of Juneteenth, also known interchangeably as Freedom Day, Emancipation Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day.
June 2021 also marks the 100th year commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre, a critical example of violence and economic injustice towards a Black American community that has resonance today. Has the promise of freedom for the formerly enslaved and their descendants been fulfilled? We will examine past and current events to highlight how Black lives and prosperity continue to be influenced by attitudes, policy, and practices. We will also explore what opportunities and actions should be pursued to move us toward a just, equitable, and inclusive society.
