Have You Heard About Juneteenth?

20 Jun Have You Heard About Juneteenth?

Yesterday we celebrated a holiday some of you may not know about – Juneteenth. The holiday was founded by African-Americans who gathered to commemorate their emancipation from slavery in Texas on June 19th, 1865. I think it’s more important now (more than ever) to learn about Juneteenth. With walls being talked about and kids being separated from their parents, we have to realize how important freedom is to all.

 

My wish is for everyone to teach one person about Juneteenth. It’s an important holiday to know. Which means that it’s up to all of us to educate our friends and family.

 

Peace and Love,
Andrew of We Take Note for The Wishwall
