A Juneteenth Conversation with Dr. Henry Louis Gates

June.17.2021

To celebrate Juneteenth, the Black Lawyers of Orrick hosted a conversation with Dr. Henry Louis Gates, renowned Harvard scholar and the host of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots.”

Kelly Newsome, Tierra Piens and Eugene Clark-Herrera hosted the conversation with Dr. Gates that touched on everything from Reconstruction, voting rights and the Black church to the role of allies and mentorship in today’s professional culture.

We are incredibly grateful to Dr. Gates and everyone who joined this conversation – the third in our 2021 series on Inclusion.

We hope you enjoy it too.
