Thank you, for an engaging interactive virtual program and celebration of Juneteenth! Nia & Nicole led us on an impactful journey as we discussed the history of Juneteenth through the exhibition and interpretation of historical artifacts. We enjoyed being together and having the opportunity to learn more about Juneteenth!

The Homage Exhibit consistently exceeds our programming expectations and Nia and her team always facilitate incredibly impactful dialogues with our campus community that leaves our students and faculty/staff with new information. I encourage any institution or organization bring the Homage Exhibit to their campus!
