Juneteenth: Its Meaning, Significance and Why We Should Celebrate It
In recognition of the monumental importance of Juneteenth (June 19) in our nation’s history, Dr. Wanda Heading-Grant, Carnegie Mellon University's Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, is convening a virtual panel discussion to address its meaning, significance and why we should celebrate it.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette award-winning columnist Tony Norman will serve as moderator.
Following in the traditions of Juneteenth Freedom celebrations, this celebration is open to all and features: music, outdoor field games, tasty ice-cream and popcorn treats, giveaways and educational materials!
As we continue to celebrate Pride month at Carnegie Mellon, the Center would like to invite you to our LGBTQ+ Joy Connect on June 29 from 4 - 5 p.m. ET on Zoom. During this casual connection hour, we'll be celebrating and sharing joy to close Pride Month. This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff at Carnegie Mellon.
