Whose is this day to celebrate?
Now that Juneteenth is a national holiday, jubilee is at the forefront.
Yet, today there are more African American men in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850. As a majority white community, we’re committing to study coupled with action, on Juneteenth and all year long.
As James Baldwin said, “Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.” So, we’re dispelling the ignorance within ourselves by reading, watching, listening to, and supporting content from Black folks. This is an invitation to quiet our hearts and listen.
and then some
We’ve created a series of nineteen emails featuring Black activists, artists, leaders, and more. Over the next nineteen days, you’ll receive challenging content and context each day. And, we’ll be in touch occasionally after these nineteen days, too; because learning isn’t finite, and because action is imperative.
We hope that you’ll join us —and spread the word— as we seek justice together.
