About Juneteenth Jam Brunch

Join us for a day of Healing, Restoration, and Fun! Juneteenth, as you know, is a day of Black Liberation. The Modern Griot Corporation (501c3) looks to connect South Saint Petersburg Community residents with BIPOC community leaders who actively serve in roles stemming from the 8 Dimensions of Wellness (emotional, social, spiritual, occupational, physical, intellectual, financial, and environmental) to address the Social Determinants of Health. We will have an equitable dialogue on how providers in their respective lines of work equip, support, and engage in action for the South Saint Petersburg Community during the Juneteenth Jam Brunch: Panel & Community Conversation. This Program will aid in equipping equitable resources through celebration and resiliency in lessening the risk of Mental Health Challenges, Racial, Economic, and Social disparities while having a safe space to become empowered and liberated!

The Table Moderation/Breakout Sessions will encompass our Community-Based Program: Ancestral Stories, Centered on Storytelling by Embracing Diversified Cultures with Unapologetic Pride & Boldness- Honoring & Advocating for Community Members to "Preserve Their Magic" and remove stigmas and stereotypes to build more inclusive environments. This portion of the event will be hosted by: Mellissa Cooper & Danny White of "Ancestral Funk & Race Without-Ism."

**This is a family-friendly event, as a Creative Kids Corner will be available for our young loved ones. Covid Vaccinations & Booster Shots will be available through the Pinellas County Urban League, WeCARE, The Well For Life, and The Florida Department of Health.

We look forward to sharing space and building a continuous reservoir of knowledge, peace, and the upbringing of more Revolutionary Healers!
