Happy Juneteenth

June 19, 1865

It was the day African Americans found out the war was over.

It was the day they found out they were free.

After years of slavery, they were free.

There has been a celebration every year since.

It reminds us that our freedom date is different than their freedom date.

Freedom is fought for.

Rioters remind us of that this year.
