 The Historical Legacy of Juneteenth


The NLRC honors the legacy of Juneteenth, which could be said is our country’s second independence day. Although it has long been celebrated in the African American community, this monumental event remains largely unknown to most Americans. Learn more about Juneteenth here and take action by at CSUSM by finding your passion on this Impactree.
