Honoring Juneteenth

"Reconciling" Conflicting Perspectives on Juneteenth: Galveston, Texas 1865

June 17-Friday | 6:30 PM 

Lesbian Social Network will join this discussion

Aziza Baker (they/them) will be providing primary sources in a seminar presentation that allows participants to understand what Juneteenth meant in 1865 to recently freed Africans, slave owners, the US government, and Black activists. Participants will be asked to think about the ways in which the perspectives of 1865 relate to how Juneteenth is understood by folx today.
