The end of slavery didn’t bring about equality for the Black Americans who built our nation. That struggle continues and takes new shape with each generation. Join WUNC for a virtual Juneteenth celebration as we honor those who have resisted injustice and take a look at where we go from here.  Leoneda Inge and Frank Stasio co-host a community conversation and listening party alongside Danielle Purifoy and Alysia Harris of Scalawag Magazine Thursday, June 18th at 6:30pm.

Featured guests include Natalie Bullock Brown and Mark Anthony Neal. Brown is a filmmaker and teaching assistant professor at North Carolina State University, and Neal is the chair of the department of African and African American Studies at Duke University. Both are recurring guests on WUNC's The State of Things as part of the #BackChannel series. Attendees will also get a preview of North Carolina poet laureate Jaki Shelton Green's debut album, "The River Speaks of Thirst."
