Juneteenth

This weekend marks Juneteenth — known in the African-American/Black community for generations, recently acknowledged and celebrated on a more national stage, Juneteenth marks the liberation of enslaved Africans in the United States.

This weekend take some time to learn more about this day and what you can do to ensure its inclusion in textbooks, and conversations on the importance of history. Find a local event, and attend too! It is through these experiences and this learning that we learn more about ourselves and all of our students.
