In the words of historian Mitch Kachun, the celebration of Juneteenth should have three goals: to celebrate, to educate, and to agitate. We celebrate the change, the freedom, and the future generations that hold a place in education, arts, politics, sports, economics—places where obstacles are now replaced with opportunities.
We wanted to highlight a few individuals that celebrate this holiday in their everyday life through self-expression, educating the community, and creating spaces for growth and change. Thank you Nene Kisseih, Iman Maxberry, & Lauren Jackson Harris for sharing how you celebrate Juneteenth not just today, but all year long.
