Mark Juneteenth with 'Poetry as Protest'

The Partnership to Renew the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial (the Museum of African American History, Friends of the Public Garden, the National Park Service, the Friends of the Public Garden, and the City of Boston) is excited to join the Royall House and Slave Quarters in presenting a special Juneteenth program.

Juneteenth 2020 coincides with a pandemic within a pandemic: the challenge of COVID-19 and America’s reckoning with its history of racism. Black Lives Matter.

Beyond the renewal of an iconic monument, we partners seek to educate, inform, and convene community conversations and special programs exploring history, race, and social justice. We hope these dialogues will lead to greater understanding — and ultimately social change which is long overdue.
