Happy Juneteenth! Like many others, I’ve only recently learned about Juneteenth, the day to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. If you need to catch up on your history as well, check out https://zcu.io/8oX4and https://zcu.io/SJ2R for more info!
We still have a long way to go to heal the scar slavery has left on our country and our culture, but we can celebrate how far we have come and reflect on the work we have still to do. We’re a library, so let’s start with books! Head on over to YouTube to check out the Juneteenth Book Fest and let’s honor and learn from some truly amazing Black authors: https://zcu.io/H3wk
