The Black Faculty & Staff Association at QCC

The Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) at Queensborough Community College will host a luncheon in celebration of the Juneteenth holiday on Thursday, June 16, 2022 in the Oakland Dining Room. The event will feature a performance of the Black National Anthem, poetry reading by select Black faculty members of the college, a brief video screening, and more. Following the event, food will be served courtesy of Southern Girls Soul Food, a Black-owned restaurant located in Laurelton, Queens. Food and community building have been at the core of Juneteenth celebrations for decades and so, it is fitting to host a luncheon and invite the entire QCC campus to join in the celebration of this monumental milestone in American history and, now, federal holiday. The luncheon advances the Strategic Plan’s goal to create belonging and sense of community in that sharing a meal “increases social bonding and feelings of wellbeing, and enhances one’s sense of contentedness and embedding within the community”. As a special treat, “On Juneteenth”, by Annette Gordon Reed, will be given to the first 20 attendees.

Due to COVID guidelines, the Oakland Dining Room has a capacity of 60. Therefore, RSVP is required for this event.
