Tyringham for Racial Justice and the Hop Brook Community Club are sponsoring “Protecting the Vote,” a panel discussion in honor of Juneteenth, at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 25, at Tyringham Union Church, 128 Main Road.

With dignitaries, spiritual leaders, racial justice advocates and townspeople gathered, a plaque and tombstone will be unveiled later this month at the Mahaiwe Cemetery, where the mortal remains of W.E.B. Du Bois’ granddaughter eventually will be laid to rest. This is just one of many events planned for Feb. 18-23 in Great Barrington to mark the legacy of a native son and civil rights icon.
