Annette Gordon-Reed and Abigail Cooper Discuss "On Juneteenth"

Please join Annette Gordon-Reed, the Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard University, and Abigail Cooper, assistant professor of history at Brandeis, for an illuminating discussion about Professor Gordon-Reed's latest book "On Juneteenth." Part history, part memoir, "On Juneteenth" is a timely exploration of the origins of the holiday.
