and History at UCLA, we will recognize Juneteenth, the oldest nationally
celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

This special program will explore the historical context of Juneteenth, the
importance of Black cultural wealth, the evolution of emancipation, and the
expanded notion of freedom. In recognition of the celebration, the

*I reverentially affirm that the lands on which I live and work are the
original homelands of the Haudenosaunee and I honor the sovereignty of the
Six Nations–the Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Seneca, and Tuscarora.
Additionally,  I strive to honor as well as respect the diverse Indigenous
people connected to these lands with gratitude for the land itself and the
people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.*
