How to celebrate Juneteenth & Commemorate Freedom Day


Also, known as “Freedom Day”, Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of the African American slaves in the United States in 1865. This was a big day (to say the least) in our country’s history, but here we are almost 200 years later in a time when black lives are still oppressed by the unequal foundational systems of our country. 

When will we find ourselves in a time when BLACK LIVES MATTER? 

When can we truly abolish systemic racism once and for all? 

When can the ancestral trauma from hundreds of years of slavery have the space to heal? 

These are questions we should all be pondering until they are answered. WE MUST DO BETTER!

“Nobody's free until everybody's free!”

-Fannie Lou Hamer
