Edmonds College | Juneteenth
Greetings Edmonds College Community,
On behalf of the Juneteenth Committee, I would like to invite you to our college’s celebration of Juneteenth! As many of you know, Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when the news reached enslaved African Americans in Texas that the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed by President Lincoln two years earlier in 1863. This day celebrates the ending of enslavement, the African American culture, Black excellence, power and joy, and the contributions of African Americans.
The two days of events will include:
Thursday, June 10 | 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 1-2 p.m.
We will have a dynamite speaker, Dr. Pamela “Safisha Nzingha” Hill, who will join us. Dr. Hill is a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consultant, an Afrocentric Scholar, Activist, Journalist, Student Development Practitioner, and Life Student of Africana Studies.
Friday, June 11 | 1:30-2:45 p.m.
We will have a meaningful program that includes our students, faculty, and staff.
If you are a faculty member, please consider attending these events with your students or offering extra credit toward their attendance at the events. Also, please explore the library's Juneteenth Resource Guide to learn more about the history, resilience, and contributions of Black/African Americans and share this information with your students.
