This discussion shall include input from a live audience, as well as select readings and reflections by world-renown authors and poets. In addition, Dr Hunter is joined by his regular co-hosts Bro.

WHAT IS JUNETEENTH? June 19th is the newest National Holiday and the official annual day of observance to celebrate the day of emancipation and independence of ALL Americans. Historically, it is the date Union soldiers, including the United States Colored Troop (USCT) enforced the Emancipation Proclamation freeing all remaining enslaved people in Galveston, Texas, in 1865. Texas was one of the last states in rebellion, following the end of the Civil War, to allow enslavement. Although the rumors of freedom were widespread prior to this, actual emancipation was not announced in the last few states practicing enslavement until General Gordon Granger and the United States Colored Troops came to Galveston, Texas and issued General Order #3, on the “19th of June,” almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation!
