Intersections in the Fight for Freedom: UBUNTU Center Chicago talks Juneteenth

About this event

This dialogue will provide background and insights on the contributions of Same Gender Loving men and women toward the Black freedom movement after the establishment of the Juneteenth holiday. This history sits at the foundation of subsequent efforts by Black gay men and women in having a liberation day here in Chicago that eventually became the gay pride parade. The dialogue will also cover the work of the organization, Chicago Black Lesbians and Gays (CBLG), the first and only Same Gender Loving organization that has marched in Chicago’s Bud Billiken Day Parade.

It will also be virtually streamed at UBUNTU Center of Chicago's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/UBUNTUCenterofChicago
