What to the American Negro in the twenty-first century is Juneteenth?
I posit this question because of the many social media references for Juneteenth. The apparent reference is to June 19, 1865, as the day slavery ended for enslaved Africans in the United States of America.
Nothing could be further from the truth. To accept this date as the exact day freedom came is to denigrate the courage exemplified by the brave sons of Africa who fought to gain their freedom during the War between the States.
