Reflecting on Equality and Education on this Juneteenth

Juneteenth is the oldest national commemoration of the end of slavery, but it took place a full two and a half years after President Lincoln made his Emancipation Proclamation. This reminds us that equality takes work and this work is not finished.

“As a leadership team of Butler/Till, we pride ourselves on education and learning. In the words of someone that was integral to our Rochester community, Frederick Douglass: ‘Some know the value of education by having it. I knew its value by not having it.’ We are privileged to have it, and want to continue to learn and grow from knowledge.”

We’d like to highlight some locations on our doorstep that are deeply interwoven into this continuing fight for freedom and equality.
