Juneteenth Playlist

Juneteenth is a celebration of African American freedom. It commemorates when news of the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation reached still enslaved Africans in the state of Texas on June 19, 1865.

 

Juneteenth (a combination of 'June' and 'nineteenth') reminds us of how African Americans persevered through delayed freedom and justice. It is a time of rejoicing, reflection, assessment, and improvement planning.

This curated Juneteenth playlist celebrates our freedom. The words of hope and calls for freedom and justice in these songs, some penned decades ago, still ring true and poignant today.
