EECS Juneteenth Celebration



EECS invites you to our first Juneteenth celebration this Friday from 1:00pm – 2:00pm EDT!

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It celebrates African American freedom and achievement. Its goal is to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures. More info >
