Celebrating Juneteenth: Honoring Freedom and Advancing Economic Empowerment with TLN



Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19th, marks a significant moment in American history—the day in 1865 when enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas, were finally informed of their freedom, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation. This day is a powerful reminder of the resilience and enduring spirit of the Black community, and it stands as a symbol of liberation, hope, and the ongoing struggle for equality.

The Lantern Network (TLN) is deeply committed to fostering economic freedom and empowerment for young Black Americans. Our mission is to create pathways to success through mentorship, education, and community support, reflecting the very essence of what Juneteenth represents—liberation and the promise of a brighter future.

A Mentee’s Testimonial


Let’s hear from one of our inspiring mentees, Taylor:


"Joining The Lantern Network has been life-changing. I was paired with a mentor who guided me through my cybersecurity studies and helped me secure a position at Deloitte. Beyond the professional guidance, TLN’s financial literacy program taught me how to manage my finances, invest wisely, and plan for my future. The support from TLN has empowered me to achieve my dreams and build a solid foundation for economic independence.
