The Minnesota Humanities Center, in partnership with the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, welcomes the public to a boxed lunch and learn event at Macalester College’s Arts Commons on “Juneteenth in Historical Context.” Scholar Angela Tate, curator of Women’s History at Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, will provide an in-depth background on: the history and significance of Juneteenth, how celebrations differ across the Black diaspora, the holiday’s recent reemergence, and how Juneteenth fits into the long civil rights movement. Professor Duchess Harris (Macalester College) will moderate a discussion.
