At this point everyone in America should know what Juneteenth is.But just in case, it is a celebration of the end of the enslavement of Black people in the Unites States.

The last slaves were freed in Galveston Texas on June 19, 1865, ending the most divisive and destructive system our country has ever seen.

We celebrate this day because it is vital that everyone understand the implication it has on society. It is vital that everyone understand that when this atrocity ended it truly was only the beginning.
