When I visited Denver’s Juneteenth celebration a few years ago to enjoy the hand drumming, I had no clue that the holiday carries significance far beyond honoring African American culture. I learned since then that Juneteenth is a shortened form of June 19, 1865. That was the day, two months after the Civil War had ended, that a Union general entered Texas, the most remote Confederate state, and publicly announced that “all slaves are free.”
Chew on these seasoned bits of life for a little hope and humor along your highway.
