The campus community demonstrated a tremendous outpouring of support and engagement at last week’s Juneteenth celebration. More than 90 Canisius faculty and staff members came together for an afternoon of education, conversation and service work at various locations around the college neighborhood.
Canisius’ active involvement in the East Side is especially important this year as our community continues to heal in the wake of the horrific Tops Market shooting last month.
Juneteenth commemorates the anniversary of the date when news of emancipation finally reached most enslaved African Americans in Texas in 1865. Juneteenth was celebrated on June 19 this year.
