June: Focus on Juneteenth

Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Learn about the history of Juneteenth and explore events, media, and other opportunities to educate ourselves and continue the fight for justice. Yale will be closed for a day of remembrance on June 19.

Community members may celebrate other cultural and religious observances in June, including Pride Month. Have we missed something? Please let us know.
