EECS invites you to our second Juneteenth celebration on Friday, June 18, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.

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 >

Our Juneteenth celebration will include:

  • Performance of the Black National Anthem

  • Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation

  • Acknowledgement of Dr. Willie Hobbs Moore, the first Black woman at Michigan to earn a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering (‘58 and ‘61), and the first Black woman in the country to earn a PhD in physics.

  • Panel discussion on the representation of black students in STEM

All are welcome to attend to celebrate and learn about Juneteenth, and the representation of black students in STEM.
