Juneteenth: A Day of Freedom, Resilience, and Triumph

On June 19, 1865, the last enslaved African Americans in the United States were finally freed, marking a crucial moment in our nation's history. Today, we celebrate Juneteenth as a day to honor the resilience and strength of the Black community and to remember the ongoing fight for racial equality. While the struggle for justice continues, we must acknowledge and learn from our past to build a more inclusive future.

Dive deeper into the history and significance of Juneteenth by watching this insightful TEDx Education talk and then watch the video by Movement for Black Lives to envision the potential future we can create collectively for everyone. Let's keep educating ourselves and our communities so that we can make strides towards true equality. 🖤❤️💚
