MADISON (WKOW) -- The Kujichagulia Madison Center for Self Determination continued its virtual Juneteenth week celebrations on Saturday.

UW Health experts joined black community leaders to talk about COVID-19 in the black community.

There were two sessions, both diving into disparities in healthcare, as movements across the country fight for social justice.

"This moment in particular was a opportunity to say, hey let's get together and talk more about this issue in depth. What does it mean to have these disparities already," said Joshua Wright, Community Project Coordinator for the UW Carbone Cancer Center.

The Kujichagulia Madison Center for Self Determination has hosted in person Juneteenth celebrations and festivals since 2009.
