Cleveland Public Library hosts a week of events to commemorate Juneteenth

May 25, 2021: Cleveland Public Library is celebrating Juneteenth with a week of cultural education programs and activities to honor the day, as well as spark conversation about history and the future of Black America.

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration observing the end of slavery in the United States. “It’s a day of reflection, a day of renewal, and a pride-filled day. It’s a moment in time taken to appreciate the African American experience,” said Dr. Sadie Winlock, Chief Equity, Education, and Engagement Officer at Cleveland Public Library.

Juneteenth festivities kick off Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 12 p.m. with a candid conversation about owning your future in Black America with Columbia University associate professor and author John McWhorter and author and podcaster Coleman Hughes. Registration is now open on cpl.org for this virtual event. McWhorter’s latest book, Nine Nasty Words, will be given to attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.

McWhorter has written more than a dozen books including The Power of Babel: A Natural History of Language, Losing the Race: Self Sabotage in Black America, and Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue: The Untold History of English. He also wrote an essay on policing the “N-word.”

 

Hughes writes about race, public policy, and applied ethics and hosts the podcast Conversations with Coleman. In June 2019, Hughes testified before Congress regarding the question of slavery reparations in hearings before the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary.
