What Is Juneteenth? Everything to Know About the Integral Day in Black History

On January 1, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation that freed enslaved people, but it took until June 19, 1865 for the news to travel to Texas, when General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston and announced that enslaved people had been freed.

Some states, including New York, have moved to make what is now recognized as Juneteenth a state holiday, but the day remains unacknowledged on a federal level.

But that looks to be changing, and soon. Just yesterday, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution to establish June 19 as Juneteenth National Independence Day. Now it moves to the House where it is expected to pass. When signed by President Biden, the day will join others such as the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as officially recognized federal holidays

Want to learn more about Juneteenth and how you can honor the day? Here's a great resource with links to reading, history, and how you can celebrate: https://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2021/06/what-is-juneteenth-everything-to-know-about-the-integral-day-in-black-history

NBA star Jordan Clarkson helps food truck graffitied with anti-Asian slur, says there's 'no room' for racist incidents

"There's just no room for that," Clarkson added, "especially right now. It's been tough, tough years on this earth, this country, this world.
"There's a lot of stuff going on. I feel like us together, and everybody finding a peace, will make things a lot more comforting in this world. We ain't got no room for the hate no more. That's got to go out of the window real quick." - https://edition.cnn.com/2021/06/11/sport/jordan-clarkson-food-truck-utah-jazz-la-clippers-milwaukee-bucks-brooklyn-nets-spt-intl/index.html #StandTogether #StopAsianHate
