Observing Juneteenth, Celebrating Freedom #Juneteenth

Juneteenth is an annual observance on June 19 to remember when Union soldiers enforced the Emancipation Proclamation and freed all remaining slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865. This day is an opportunity for people to celebrate freedom and equal rights in the United States.

Celebrate this day for those who were freed during a dark time history. This is also a reminder that all people should be free. Be mindful of those who lived under the oppression of slavery in the United States and elsewhere.

Quote Of The Day

I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.

Malcolm X

Juneteenth, A Celebration Of Freedom

Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.

Remember this time in history and realize that everyone should be free to live their lives as they wish.

Indie

In a world of corporation, conglomeration, chains
There is a spirit of being Indie

Indie films on a screen
Indie bands with new, exciting music in your ear
Indie food with a different taste
Indie artists who paint outside the lines sometimes
Indie writers and poets with something radical to say
Indie wrestlers wanting their time in the ring
Indie people seeking freedom to do their own thing without consequence

There is something refreshing about being Indie
You can find a new spirit tied to creativity
There’s a risk of being Indie but the reward is eternal

Indie means being Independent and Interdependent simultaneously

The thing about being Indie is that you take a chance
That is worth it all

Be Indie
