Juneteenth in Me: A Journey of Remembrance and Education

Join Antwoinette Ayers, an influential voice in cultural education and remembrance, for an enlightening presentation on Juneteenth and its profound significance in St. Louis.

Antwoinette's talk is more than a historical account; it's a call to awareness and education about the often-untold stories of African Americans in St. Louis. She highlights the significance of locations like Bernard Lynch's slave pens, now replaced by modern landmarks, urging the audience to acknowledge and understand the cultural roots buried beneath the city's contemporary façade.

Antwoinette Ayers' "Juneteenth in Me" is not just a recounting of events; it's an immersive experience that educates, commemorates, and honors the African American journey. It's an invitation to understand and celebrate the liberation from bondage, echoing the sentiments and struggles of our ancestors through a contemporary lens. 

Book Antwoinette Ayers for this transformative experience to learn, remember, and pay homage to a pivotal chapter in American history.
