As we enter our virtual job fair, we ask our students, alumni, staff and employers to take a moment to reflect on the significance of this date, June 19. Barack Obama put it best in 2015, when he said:
“On this day 150 years ago, more than two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, the slaves of Galveston, Texas finally received word that the Civil War was over. They were free. A century and a half later, Americans still recognize this occasion, Juneteenth, as a symbolic milestone on our journey toward a more perfect union. So, no matter our color or our creed, no matter where we come from or who we love, today is a day to find joy in the face of sorrow, to count our blessings and hold the ones we love a little closer. And tomorrow is a day to keep marching.” June 15, 2015 President Barack Obama United States in observance of Juneteenth, June 19.”
MCC celebrates this day. We are in solidarity with our Black students, alumni, faculty and staff, and disavow the structural racism that persists to this day. Through today's career fair and all of our programs, we remain committed to economic justice and equitable access to employment opportunities.
