Juneteenth, the oldest African-American holiday, may also be the most ambigious holiday ever. So Let’s Talk About Juneteenth with Moorestown, New Jersey’s Ashlynn Conley, a co-founder of the town’s Juneteenth celebration. Let’s talk about an event that encourages us to celebrate – but also to educate ourselves, and to agitate, in the face of ongoing inequality. Join Moorestown Friends Meeting’s Anti-Racism Committee on Thursday 16 June at 7:30pm on Zoom to explore a weighty history and an invigorating promise. Then join the ARC and our neighbors at the celebration itself on Saturday 18 June at the Perkins Center in Moorestown, 395 King’s Highway.
