Juneteenth And America's Buried History

Juneteenth, the commemoration of the end of slavery in America, has been a day of celebration in the black community since 1866, yet many Americans are just now learning of its meaning. Until recently, the only team to acknowledge Juneteenth was the Tulsa Drillers, who since 2011, have paid tribute to Tulsa's negro league team, the T-Town Clowns. Juneteenth, and other events in Black history such as the Tulsa Race Massacre, are days we should remember. They may not bring back the lives of those lost at the hands of brutality, oppression and racism, but we should always celebrate them, fight for them, and never bury their history.
