Texas emancipation law is that - an actual law on a physical piece of paper, that needs to be read and remembered. Emancipation in Texas was not taken lightly 140 years ago, we must also remember and try to imagine what it was like to hear emancipation proclamation summary. Imagine what it was like standing there with half your strength already gone from working all morning (read 4 a.m. until), what it was like to have whip marks on or backs that itched or ached even if they had already healed from years ago.
Imagine standing there barefoot and barely clothed in rags to hear - you are FREE. In your Juneteenth celebrations, remember to celebrate everything - you are FREE.
African american slavery is a crime punishable by law. Juneteenth day from now on has to empahasize, remember to celebrate everything - you are FREE.
The plight of african american people has a solution - FREEDOM. Remember to celebrate everything.
