Agenda for June 25th, 2020

 

 

Quote

“Of all Emancipation Day observances, Juneteenth falls closest to the summer solstice…the longest day of the year, when the sun, at its zenith, defies the darkness in every state, including those once shadowed by slavery. By choosing to celebrate the last place in the South that freedom touched…we remember the shining promise of emancipation, along with the bloody path America took by delaying it and deferring fulfillment of those simple, unanticipated words in Gen. Granger’s original order No. 3: that ‘This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves’”  — Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
