What does Juneteenth mean to FIU Panthers?
Educating, celebrating, and embracing the truths of Juneteenth can serve to expand the collective knowledge of our entire FIU community. Celebrating Juneteenth complements the work of the founding fathers, being the architects of the Declaration of Independence, and brings to the conversation, the 400 years black Americans have tried to achieve equality in enjoying ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’
