SOUTHERN LACED spoke with Keyana Hawthorne and Monique Mapp of Legacy Builders Inc. about the history of June 19, 1865, which is also known as Juneteenth, Freedom Day and Juneteenth Independence Day. Many African Americans, both young and old, have never heard of the day that celebrates the freedom of the last slaves in America.
Armed with almost invisible pages of U.S history, Hawthorne and Mapp shared their knowledge in a detailed conversation with SOUTHERN LACED host Santana for the GET LACED… LET’S TALK! Podcast.
Juneteenth On Farish “Freedom Gala” will be held on Friday, June 15, 2018, from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Smith Robertson Museum. Click HERE to purchase your tickets.
