Juneteenth: Honoring Freedom and Celebrating African American Heritage

June 19, 2023 / Ann Arbor

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is a significant holiday in the United States that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. In the Department of Pathology, Juneteenth is honored with an Equality Walk, in which members of the department from all levels and backgrounds, walk in unity around the North Campus Research Complex and take time to kneel to remember those who have been unjustly killed due to their race. Video and social media posts share this activity with people around the world, as just one aspect of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion at Michigan Medicine’s Department of Pathology.
