Join me for the Juneteenth Story Hour presented by Drag Story Hour – Arizona in partnership with Bookmans Entertainment Exchange and Flagstaff City – Coconino County Public Library. This story hour will be streamed live on Saturday, June 19 at 3 p.m. PDT/Arizona time.
Juneteenth is a celebration of freedom and the call to end slavery in 1866. This was two years after the Emancipation Proclamation by Abraham Lincoln. It’s important to celebrate the freedoms of slaves in the United States and was just signed in as federal holiday in the United States by the Senate, Congress and President Joe Biden.
