Juneteenth Reading List

Reading list originally created in support of Lexington's 2021 Juneteenth celebration

About this Guide

In celebration of Juneteenth, representatives from multiple Lexington and Rockbridge organizations joined forces to plan a series of fun and thought-provoking events set to occur over June  2021, including an art show, live music, and more.

Supporting this celebration, local librarians collaborated across institutions to develop this resource list. In addition to resources specific to Juneteenth, this guide lists materials related to American slavery and emancipation. 

Browse the blue menu items (to the left on a computer and above on a phone/tablet) to explore print and digital materials available through these libraries and the open web. For questions about this guide, please email library@wlu.edu.
