Increasingly traditional, established and more emergent constituencies of American society have called into disputation the veracity of American history, particularly concerning the lived experiences of citizens of African origin and heritage. These constituencies are resolved to remove the nefariously earned badge of shame and hypocrisy that are fixed in history, by revising history to appease and repair their political and social profiles.
Dutifully, Forum Philly, endeavors to bring light and integrous critique to such history as well as sober, best practices for truth sharing and contemporary reflection. Moreover, Forum Philly is committed to ensure that local students curate and experience educational content grounded in factual history concerning the basis for Juneteenth that also fosters and documents the resilience, equality, resolve toward dignity, achievement, and freedom of African Americans beyond impediment and oppression.
To this end Forum Philly is again bringing together leaders and opportunity to commemorate the significance and events of Juneteenth, the oldest known official observance of the end of American slavery
Forum Philly is partnering with the William Penn School District, sponsors and community leaders to plan, coordinate and stage student led, school basedJuneteenth specific instruction and learning assemblies and eductainment programs supervised by faculty during the final week of the 21-22 school year.
