Is Your Company Observing Juneteenth? Here’s How We’re Celebrating and Honoring the Day

Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when Union troops carried out federal orders in Galveston, Texas ensuring that the last remaining enslaved persons in the Confederacy were free.

In recognition of the holiday, we have curated an array of relevant resources, readings, and films that offer important context about race in America, the history of the Civil Rights Movement and the evolution of racism as a persistent and systemic part of American history.

We hope this information is helpful as you plan your Juneteenth commemoration this year.
