Join us for a one-hour special Radio Boston dedicated to Juneteenth here in Massachusetts, and nationwide. We reflect on Black life in America, Black history, and the racial arc of the country since the 2020 murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.

We're joined by Kellie Carter Jackson, associate professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College; Renee Graham, opinion columnist and associate editor from the Boston Globe; and Joel Christian Gill, a cartoonist, historian and associate professor at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

This program aired on June 20, 2022.
