Remember Juneteenth

Shopping cart

                                                                     

Juneteenth is a celebratory holiday that many of us didn't learn about in school. New books are shedding light on the origins and importance of the day, so in addition to those titles, we've pulled together a list of books that celebrate Black freedom and joy. You'll also find fiction and non-fiction that addresses the history of Black struggle in America as well as present day realities of Black struggle. Although Juneteenth is a celebration, we cannot ignore the ongoing struggles of Black people in America.
