This Juneteenth, our virtual #BHeard Town Hall will look at the state of freedom in Black communities as they grapple with COVID-19, benign neglect, and state-sanctioned violence.

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of enslavement in the United States. Since June 19th, 1865 the day has emphasized education, achievement and reflection on African-American freedom.
