The Publisher’s Column: Will Juneteenth Celebrations Lead To Black Reparations?
Juneteenth is now a national holiday to be celebrated. The reason Juneteenth came into existence is because Black people in Galveston, Texas were told that they were free in 1865 years after Lincoln had freed all slaves in these United States of America in 1863.
Let the celebrations begin as they will all over America including in the 10th District Leimert Park where Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas is hosting a Grand Opening Ceremony followed by a huge Juneteenth celebration, Saturday and Sunday according to Ricky Ricardo, PACE NEWS community correspondent.
Now that Biden and Harris have garnered a partisan political team for Juneteenth, let’s see if their partisan unity, on behalf of the Black community, will also give cause for celebration with a bill signed for Black reparations?
