Juneteenth is a recognition of American history where on June 19, 1865 (only 156 years ago) more than 250,000 enslaved black people were informed they were free. This was an astounding 2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed in 1863. The month of June is a specific time to reflect on this moment of history, reconcile with the past, present and how we see the future. Black Americans are only 2-3 generations removed from slavery and still suffer from systems permeated with racial bias. The fight for true and complete freedom still continues.
