Harvard and the state of Massachusetts recently began to recognize Juneteenth as an official holiday. According to Harvard president Lawrence Bacow, Juneteenth “offers a moment to acknowledge and celebrate the promise of a new beginning. We are everywhere reminded of the possibility of something different—something better—for our communities, our states, and our nation, as well as the deep reflection and hard work getting there will require of all of us.”

We hope you’ll join us!
