Happy Friday, Juneteenth! What are your plans for the weekend?
Today is Juneteenth. As an African American woman, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I didn’t know about this holiday until I was an adult. I’ve been reading a lot of posts on social media from people saying the same. To me, that’s another reminder that it’s important for us to educate ourselves and our families beyond what we’re taught in school. Hopefully now that this very important American holiday is getting the recognition it always deserved, schools will begin teaching children about its history. I hope that schools will also teach students about the Black Wall Street Massacre in Tulsa, Oklahoma and all of the Black American History that has been left out of our history books.
When did you learn about Juneteenth?
When did you learn about what happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921?
Here’s a few things I wanted to share…

13th, a powerful Netflix documentary. If you’ve watched it, I’d love to know your thoughts.
