The Willie & Elizabeth Gordon Family Foundation (@WEGFF) is hosting the panel, ‘Liberated? Redefining Freedom for Black Families’. This Livestream panel presentation will be held on Saturday, June 26th 2021 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (PST). Join our panel of experts to discuss how the definition of liberation has changed over the past few years in light of multiple health, economic, and racial crises and talk about what lessons from history can be passed on to young people.

Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss how freedom has changed since the first Juneteenth and what struggles still lie ahead for Black families in this current environment. What should families be discussing with their children? How can the lessons of the past inform the present?

Guest speakers will include:

Glodean Champion (@glodeanglo), Coach, Educator, Speaker, Storyteller and Author of “Salmon Croquettes”

Melanie Perry (@zeallionaire), Certified Financial Planner and Founder of Zeallionaire Enterprises

Quentin R. Jiles (@quentinrjiles) Political Commentator and Author of “Listen Niece”

This event is not only perfect for families, but it is ideal for educators who are interested in augmenting their discussion of Black freedom for students. The discussion will lead to a toolkit for both educators and families.
