The REAL Independence Day, June 19 or Juneteenth, is a day that many African-Americans don’t know about, even today. In fact, I didn’t learn about it until I was transferred through my work to Dallas, Texas in 1978.
What a surprise??? Black folks actually HAD a holiday before Dr. M.L.King’s birthday? And yes, folks in Texas took the holiday very, very seriously as well we all should. Maybe one day every American will celebrate the real Freedom Day!.
