Join Sister Crystal along with Brothers Patrick and Muhammad as they highlight the importance of Juneteenth.

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, a Union General rode into Galveston, Texas to announce that the Civil War had ended, and slaves had been freed.  Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. The troops' arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

You are cordially invited to join the discussion. The call-in line will be open ... dial 563.999.3682 and press 1.
