I didn’t grow up in a segregated world nor one where human slavery was practiced– at least locally. Some Muslim nations still quietly tolerate it in other parts of the world.
I’d never heard of Juneteenth until a few years ago. At first blush, I assumed it was being promoted for race hustling purposes, aimed to divide the country further, or advance the march of cultural Marxism in the USA. I was hesitant and slightly cynical.
Then I changed my mind. I now conclude it is worthy of great celebration in our nation.
