UA Little Rock Juneteenth Celebration

We are excited to commemorate Freedom Day with the third Annual Juneteenth Celebration for our UA Little Rock campus community. This year’s event celebrates freedom and heritage within Black culture, and reflections upon the legacy of Juneteenth. We hope our Juneteenth celebration allows us to celebrate the resilience of our Black community while reinforcing our drive to build an equitable and inclusive environment.
