Black Writers Read: Juneteenth, One Year Later
June 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Friday, June 19, 2020, Valley Society hosted an over 3-hour virtual event, convening 16 Black writers from across the country to share their work. Seeing the need to sustain this platform, we launched the series, Black Writers Read. Join us, one year later in celebration of Juneteenth, to hear from members of Valley Society and past Black Writers Read guests reflect on the year in Black culture, literary arts, and existence. Members of Valley Society will read excerpts from work written over the past year.
