One of the premier gatherings of Minnesota’s thought leaders, creative sector and business leaders, the Minnesota Humanities Center’s Juneteenth Brunch is an opportunity for the community to examine how together we can work toward greater justice and equity.

The 2024 Juneteenth Brunch will feature a keynote address and community conversation with Bakari Sellers on the thesis of his new book, “The Moment: Thoughts on the Race Reckoning That Wasn’t and How We All Can Move Forward Now.” Sellers is a CNN political analyst and lobbyist for the government of Liberia, and a former member of the South Carolina legislature. This commemoration experience includes a carefully curated brunch, festive celebration, and a copy of Mr. Sellers’ new book.

In addition to our Partners in Equity sponsors, funding for this project is provided in part by Thrivent, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, the African American Leadership Forum, the League of Women Voters of Minnesota, Minnesota Association for Black Lawyers, Mortenson, and Mutual of America.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation services will be available at this event.
