As Juneteenth approaches, Stark & Stark employees are excited to participate in a presentation given by archivist Sonja N. Woods on June 17, 2021, hosted by the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee. Ms. Woods will be giving a lunchtime presentation titled: “Juneteenth: Fact, Fiction, and Frustration”. The hour-long presentation will discuss many topics, including:

  • Why Juneteenth Seems Like a New Celebration
  • The History of Juneteenth
  • The Lobbyists’ Narrative
  • The Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment
  • African-Americans in the Civil War

Presenter Sonja N. Woods is the Archivist for the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center at Howard University in Washington, D.C..
