    New Information

    The Racial Equity Team has been working hard on addressing issues of race, privilege, power, and equity in our school, and community. To continue these conversations, we wanted to share with our community different articles, podcasts, and videos to encourage conversations around these topics. Each item shared has been evaluated using an equity analysis tool. We encourage you to engage with the items shared, reflect on how they relate to your own life, and have respectful conversations with your community. Remember that these conversations can be hard and we should expect and accept discomfort. If you have any items you would like to share with the Racial Equity Team, please email them to Maddie Hall (mchall@seattleschools.org). We are excited to engage in this work with you. -- HWK8 RET

    1. Juneteenth commemorates the June 19, 1865, arrival of Union soldiers in Galveston, Texas, to tell slaves they were free, the last African Americans to learn the Emancipation Proclamation had officially freed them two years earlier.  Former slaves in Galveston rejoiced in the streets after the announcement, and the following year, organized the first of what became the annual celebration of Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day in Texas. Now recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in 45 states, it’s a celebration of the contributions of African Americans throughout history.
