Open Thread | Juneteenth Is Now A National Holiday

I didn’t learn about Juneteenth in school. It was an Elder in the church, who grew up in Texas, that taught me about Juneteenth as a child.

You will not disrespect nor denigrate the work of activists of many years.

You will not diminish this by bringing all the other issues that need to be fixed.

You will not dampen the joy of this victory.

Happy Juneteenth!
