Juneteenth 101: Monday June 15, 2020 at 7:20pm EST


To kick off our week, we’re informing, inspiring and empowering the women and men of the black community to know more about their roots. Join us for a blue table talk with black professionals about Juneteenth: where it comes from and what it represents. Come hungry for knowledge, as Malcolm X once said, "education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today". Let’s prepare for a better future by educating ourselves! Zoom information will be shared upon your RSVP.

Beginning Monday June 1st until Monday June 15th, we will be accepting all forms of art that display and address the themes above.
