On the eve of Juneteenth 2020, University of Missouri alumni who experienced protests and racial tension on campus in 2015 help us make sense of what’s happening nationwide five years later in this live event organized by Mizzou Black Alumni Network NYC, Mizzou NYC, and Mizzou Chicago
The alumni panelists discuss how their pivotal experiences at Mizzou shaped their perspective and actions after civil unrest erupted across the United States in June 2020, and they offer suggestions moving forward.

Ainsworth Park is one of the best sports bars in the cities and with its completely open front and outdoor seating will be a great place to kick off the start of the SEC season.
They’ll have beer and bourbon specials, half off wine by the glass, the SEC Network on dozens of HD flat screens, and great music to get everyone ready for the season ahead.
