USA is where it is today because of free labor, economic, social, cultural, political annihilated of African American communities across the country. But still, the returns of arts and cultural labor by the same community was controlled and stolen by a privileged class of white patriarchs. The least that the USA can do is to honour this said contribution with JUNTEENTH a paid national Holiday. Start showing some remorse and humility America. Thank you Mam Opal Lee for leading this Campaign. Ideally, as an elder, you should be resting and enjoying your senior days. But you are forced into yet another campaign to defend recognition and dignity of African Americans communities. we thank you Mama

Whites/Black Americans Agree this Holiday is
Something that America has to “ Reckon” with yearly. As a “Historical “ date in American History.
Which has been “Diluted” by whites historians
Not to included Historical Events/People of All
Nationalities ! Stop the Exclusions, Today

The victory of the Union and the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans is just as important as Independence Day.
