Our Latest Grace

Note

Happy Juneteenth 2020!

Juneteenth: The day that the yoke of slavery lifted off the last remaining slaves in America.

Also known as Emancipation Day, Black Independence Day and Jubilee Day, we pray that Juneteenth soon becomes a National Holiday.

Official Juneteenth Poem

We Rose

From Africa’s heart, we rose

Already a people, our faces ebon, our bodies lean,

We rose

Skills of art, life, beauty and family Crushed by forces we knew nothing of, we rose

Survive we must, we did, We rose

We rose to be you, we rose to be me, Above everything expected, we rose

To become the knowledge we never knew, We rose

Dream, we did Act we must

~ Kristina Kay (1996)
