Sean Garvey (host of The Mental Space) held a roundtable of influential people to discuss Juneteenth, reparations, and their connection to mental health. The guests’ panel includes economist Hakeem Webb, Chief Sundiata Kamara, licensed mental health counselor Dr. Joanne Frederick, and community activist Teresa Hardy.

  • Why are African-Americans still experiencing mental health issues after Juneteenth was declared a national federal holiday? 
  • Should African-Americans receive reparations?
  • If people of African descent receive reparations, what can they do with reparations to help manage their mental health?
