Adrian Miller, the Soul Food Scholar, and Sharee Clark, founder of Freedom Fighters in Wilkes-Barre, join Sam and Jordi for a rich, meaty discussion about Juneteenth, Adrian’s stellar writing on food and African-American heritage (and just all-American heritage!), Juneteenth in our area and more! Thanks to Bucknell University and the NAACP for arranging for his visit (a first!) to the area.
Sharee is organizing this Juneteenth celebration, with food!, in Wilkes-Barre.
Adrian will be the keynote speaker at the TriCounty Lycoming NAACP’s Juneteenth in Williamsport.
Events start at 9 at the Freedom Road cemetery, established by Daniel Hughes, a free Black man in mid 19th century in Williamsport.
The regional Juneteenth celebration coming up on Saturday, June 19, from 10:30am to 5pm in Brandon Park, Williamsport, will include, among many other things, a mobile vaccine clinic provided by River Valley Health and Dental. The mobile clinic will be offering J&J single-dose vaccination between 11 and 3 that day. The first 50 to get vaccinated at the event will receive $5 Sheetz gift cards. Those needing to schedule for one of the other vaccines can also make appointments then to visit the RVHD site later on.
