Unfortunately there is no appropriate television reference to mark the celebration of Juneteenth. And in the Addy series of the American Girl books, she definitely found out on April 10th....not June 19th (Yes I remember that from years ago). But in comradeship with my people down in Galveston, Texas let's all reflect on the importance of freedom and the struggles that continue until today.
I wrote this up over on RBMVibes as my perfect Juneteenth/Caribbean American Heritage Month song. Check it out here. Also peep the Black Music Month coverage they've been doing.
