It seems like the knowledge of what Juneteenth actually is has skyrocketed in no less than 14 days. If you don’t know what Juneteenth is, it’s actually the day where Texas slaves were freed, two whole years after The Civil War ended. On this day, tons of African Americans celebrate true freedom and the power it holds. So! I’ve curated a playlist that is pure, black JOY. Drink some Kool-Aid with the family and enjoy it.
