Juneteenth can be understood as a celebratory holiday, but also offers an opportunity for reflection in the face of the ongoing struggle for liberation and justice for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. As we reflect on a time when BIPOC communities continue to face oppression, how do stories allow us to hold space for both joyful celebration and heartache in the fight for freedom?

In a virtual conversation, HealthSpark’s Chinwe Onyekere will consider this question with Assistant Professor of African American History at Virginia Commonwealth University Dr. Michael DickinsonKeisha Hudson, Managing Director at advocacy outlet The Appeal; and Ashton Lattimore, Editor-In-Chief of the BIPOC-led newsroom Prism
