Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the U.S. that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans, but what may Juneteenth mean for international students? What is the distinction of celebrating freedom under the context of Juneteenth versus the 4th of July? Join Loreen S. Henry, UT Dallas McDermott Library Head of Information Literacy Services, and Intercultural Programs (ICP) to discuss global perspectives of freedom and historically explain Juneteenth for international students.
