DMA Arts & Letters Live, in partnership with World Affairs Council, presents author Annette Gordon-Reed, who will be in conversation with Jonathan Holloway, President of Rutgers University, about her new book, On Juneteenth.

On Juneteenth is a sweeping story of Juneteenth’s integral importance to American history, as told by the Pulitzer Prize–winning historian and Texas native. Weaving together American history, a dramatic family chronicle, and searing episodes of memoir, the book provides a historian’s view of the country’s long road to Juneteenth, recounting both its origins in Texas and the enormous hardships that African Americans have endured in the century since, from Reconstruction through Jim Crow and beyond.

The recording will be available through June 29.
