Today is Juneteenth! Did you celebrate?
This CNN Travel piece (Juneteenth: Where to honor the end of slavery) talks about some of the history and the events celebrating this milestone.
Check out these videos posted on the MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) website.
The internet is filled with news of Juneteenth events around the country. Did you attend one? If so, please give a shout out to where it was and what made it so great!
