Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth honors the end to slavery in the United States and is considered the longest-running African American holiday.
Dear C.S.200 Families, The NYC Department of Education is working on plans for re-opening school buildings in the 2020-21 school year and is currently exploring various options based on available guidance from public health experts. We want your feedback to understand what is most important to you!
Dear Manhattan Community, We write to you in the darkest days of our lives. We are deeply saddened by the murder of George Floyd. Our hearts and prayers are with his family and our African-American community across the country, the city, and here in Manhattan.

Today, we need to come together and acknowledge that our Black and Brown community is hurting and tired of generational and institutional racism.
