“When the U.S. became free in 1776, it wasn’t a celebration for everyone. Black Americans weren’t declared free for another 87 years, but it wouldn’t be until two and a half years after that, the last slaves would officially be freed.

Juneteenth marks a day of liberation. We have reason to celebrate the journey and freedom of Black Americans in this country – and amidst all that’s happening in the 2020 we want to push for full recognition and celebration of this day on a national level.”
