Beyond Black Survival, We Thrive
Tuesday, June 14 | 6–7 p.m. (ET)
Find comfort and support as we come together to take part in a virtual healing circle with the Black Healers Network of Greater Rochester.
Thursday, June 23 | 6–7:30 p.m. (ET)
Join Dr. Warren Crichlow ’92W (EdD) to reflect on the evolution and significance of June Nineteenth, now “Juneteenth.” Distinctive and complex with remembrance, this newly minted federal holiday symbolizes the past, present, and possible futures of the African American story amid today’s divisive politics and deepening public ambivalence. Together, we’ll explore what it means to celebrate Juneteenth now, and look forward in the face of a moral reckoning.
We kindly ask that you register in advance for the June 14 and June 23 events.
