On June 19th, we celebrate Juneteenth which is also known as Freedom Day in America – when the final enslaved people were informed of their freedom from slavery more than 2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation.
As a community, we have been intentionally reflecting and acting on systemic racism toward black Americans and the many racial injustices and brutalities in our country that have persisted since slavery. Today is a time to celebrate Juneteenth with greater intention and to dive deeper into all of our American history by learning more about the largely untold stories.
Here are some articles to look through as well as books and other media suggestions. I look forward to hearing how you choose to honor Juneteenth!
