Defining moments in history remind us of the ongoing fight for freedom, justice, and equity. On June 19, 1865, in Galveston, Texas, the Emancipation Proclamation was announced, thus commemorating the end of Black enslavement in America. This profound event has become known as Juneteenth, Freedom Day, or Emancipation Day and serves as a time to commemorate the end of the heinous practice of chattel slavery. 

Fielding Graduate University strives to be an equity-serving institution by acknowledging our shared histories and engaging cultural moments that represent the diversity of our Fielding community. 

This year we host the Inaugural Celebration event. Our Keynote Speaker is Human Development Program alum Beverly Stevenson, Ph.D’13. Dr. Stevenson is President & CEO, Mollie Taylor Stevenson, Sr.  FLP, Ltd and Heirs Inc. 

Dr. Stevenson’s keynote is titled Historical Sociological Study of the Taboo Interracial Relationship of Edward Rthven Taylor, Slave Broker’s Son, and Ann (George) Taylor, Former Slave, in Houston, Texas. 

Please join President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D., VP of DEI Allison Davis-White Eyes, Ph.D., and Distinguished Senior Advisor to President Orlando L. Taylor, Ph.D., and our Keynote Speaker, alum Beverly Stevenson, Ph.D., to learn more about the significance of Juneteenth to Black institutions and communities, but more importantly to us as a nation with a shared responsibility to ensure the freedom and dignity of everyone.
