Juneteenth has always been a day for the Black community to gather in celebration, and at a moment like this, where our nation is forced to reckon with the consequences of its racist and bigoted systems, it’s important that we continue the tradition of gathering in purpose, power, and action.
Join us as we kick off our Juneteenth celebrations on Thursday, June 18 at 6:00 P.M. ET with a virtual town hall on sports and the struggle for social justice. Moderated by sportscaster, Mike Hill, the event will feature a candid discussion from several current and former athletes. The discussion will be preceded by a screening of Fritz Pollard: A Forgotten Man at 5 PM ET.
JUNETEENTH VIRTUAL TOWN HALL
NAACP and REVOLT TV have partnered to provide a safe space for Black families to convene in that same spirit. Join us on Friday, June 19 at 4 P.M. as the leaders of the new civil rights movement, celebrities, and other public figures come together for our Virtual Black Family Reunion.
And at 6 P.M. ET, Angela Rye will host a virtual town hall to honor the Black lives lost these past few months, uplift our community in this time of distress, and rally together to form a united path forward.
