"More than 100 years after the #EmancipationProclamation , there were black people in the Deep South who had no idea they were free. These people were forced to work, violently tortured, and raped." . . . Today - #Juneteenth - We remember our #ancestors who endured The #Transatlantic slave trade. We celebrate today as the last of #enslaved #Africans were informed that the law proclaimed their freedom.
