What is Juneteenth? One of the oldest African-American holidays, we will discuss the origins of Juneteenth and what it means today.

June 12- Carla Christopher, What is Juneteenth?
Considered one of the oldest African-American holidays, Carla will share with us the history of Juneteenth and what this celebration means to Black communities today.

Carla studied psychology, education, and creative writing at Columbia University in the City of New York and spent years as an educator and case manager in domestic violence shelters, state prison systems, and school districts before uniting her belief in the power of relationship and storytelling with her passion for activism.
