It's Time To Recognize

Destiny S. Harris

Juneteenth (June 19th), the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration, recognizes the demise of slavery in the United States.

July 4th celebrates the Independence of America, which was stolen from Native-Americans and built by African slaves.

Yes, the independence that was obtained by America is a great feat, but how America was built into the most powerful country in the world was executed inappropriately.

Juneteenth is finally starting to accumulate more recognition as a holiday, which I am thankful for. However, there are still vast audiences unaware of the significance of this powerful day for the African-American community.

Take time to learn about Juneteenth, a critical holiday that has transformed the lives of those who make up the African-American community, and be sure to celebrate this day in which human lives were involuntarily and finally given their freedom.

+ HIT that HEART!
