Generations after the end of slavery in the United States, the complete promise of Juneteenth has yet to be fulfilled. Join four of Vermont’s Black leaders as they look back at 156 years since Emancipation, discuss the modern Black American experience, and look forward to what full liberation ultimately means. Panelists include Xusana Davis, Zoraya Hightower, Tabitha Moore and Kiah Morris, with a discussion facilitated by Belan Antensaye.

The panel begins with readings from the winners of The Young Writer’s Project Juneteenth Youth Poetry Contest.

It’s an exciting shift into the center of town, with three nonprofit neighbors also in the building and the library across the parking lot. While hosting our TV camp for youngsters in August, we enjoyed having the elbow room at our new space!
