BC Juneteenth Event Celebrates Education and Freedom
The highlight of the event was the keynote address by Morgan Clayton, Founder and CEO of Tel-Tec Security Systems. Clayton captivated the crowd with his gripping life story and shared a deeply symbolic artifact: authentic slave chains and iron that had been in his family's possession for over a century and a half. Passed down to him by his grandfather, Clayton regarded these relics as a powerful reminder of his freedom from the shackles of the past, urging all present to break free from any limitations hindering their progress. The event also featured Jonathan Corker, co-founder of A2mend, African American Male Education Network & Development, who eloquently shared his experiences as a devoted father and returning student, providing a relatable narrative for many in attendance.
BC looks forward to many more Juneteenth Celebrations and opportunities to highlight our diverse students and community.
