The evening will consist of a Q&A led by Germantown Infohub’s Rasheed Ajamu with speakers Gwen Ragsdale of the We Forget Slavery Museum, journalist Cassie Owens, and Juneteenth Festival Founder Cornelia Swinson! Following the talk, Chef Gail will provide a delicious meal inspired by the Juneteenth era infused with a rich history of Black culture!
