Juneteenth – Education & Celebration
- Starts: 11:30 am on Thursday, June 17, 2021
- Ends: 12:30 pm on Thursday, June 17, 2021
Building off last year’s FSCN Juneteenth event, the Faculty & Staff of Color Community Network invites you to engage in a conversation about Juneteenth and the community. We plan to come together to explore the thinking around why and how states, cities, and organizations are choosing to observe Juneteenth. This year we will be joined by Dr. Craig Andrade, School of Public Health Associate Dean of Practice and Director of The Activist Lab, who is a member of the Antiracism Working Group (AWG). The AWG provided the recommendation that Boston University recognizes Juneteenth as an official holiday.
