On June 19, from 2-4 p.m., the UNL Libraries will host its second annual Juneteenth Commemorative Program featuring students from Dr. Katrina Jagodinsky’s summer research course. Drs. Will Thomas and Jagodinsky will provide remarks. The event will be held in the Auditorium (LS 102) of Love Library South with a reception to follow the program.


The students, coming to UNL from colleges and universities around the United States, are part of a cohort of students in the Digital Legal Research Lab and have been studying and encoding legal cases of freedom petitions from Maryland, Missouri, and Nebraska. They will share the stories of the people and situations involved in the cases a part of their research. Discussion will also focus on the importance of building research models that bring these type of stories into a broader conversation about American history.
