The Center for International Studies and the Office of Global Affairs and International Studies joins the African American community to commemorate Juneteenth while also recognizing the various ways that systemic racism, discrimination, and inequality are alive today.  As members of an interconnected world, we must champion social and racial justice, fight white supremacy, and defend the global imperative of freedom.
