Selected books in honor of Juneteenth

by Katherine "Kitty" Luce on 2022-06-20T13:42:00-07:00 | Comments

June 19, 1865, two years after President Abraham Lincoln presented the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, slaves in confederate states finally received word that they were free.

Freedom is a thread, and a fight, woven through this nation's history and current political climate. Continue to take action to celebrate and ensure true freedom for all through awareness of racial disparities, mobilization, and bold actions necessary to further the fight for social justice and equal opportunity.
