Juneteenth Commemoration

Juneteenth is celebrated throughout the US on June 19th to recognize the end of slavery. 155 years later, chattel slavery is illegal and mass incarceration has replaced it as a form of bondage in Black and Brown communities. We encourage attendees to read Just Mercy (adult or young adult version) by Bryan Stevenson or view the film of the same title on your own. Then, join us for this panel discussion and reaction to the themes raised in the books and film. Appropriate for adults and school-age children age 13 and up. Books are available at the Winchester Public Library or Book Ends. The film is available at the Winchester Public Library. Call the Winchester Public Library for a copy of the book or film at 781-721-7171 x 320. Register here.

The event is finished.
