On the evening of Monday, June 20, the UChicago Charter School community and partners came together to celebrate Juneteenth. The celebration centered “resisting trauma through freedom dreaming” and was sponsored by the UChicago Trauma-Responsive Education Practices (TREP) Project, the UChicago My Very Own Library program, Haji Healing Salon in Bronzeville, and the UChicago Office of the Provost’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiative.

Thank you to the celebration’s sponsors and all who made the event possible—particularly Sonya Mathies Dinizulu, Micere Keels, and Duane Davis at the University of Chicago—as well as all who attended!
