Happy Juneteenth! 🥳✊🏽
In honor of this Freedom Day, we read On Juneteenth by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Annette Gordon-Reed. She expertly weaves the history of different people, personal narrative, and present day analysis into a short book that gives context to the now federal holiday.
Shout out to @semicolonchi for welcoming us like family into their bookstore and putting us onto this book. You must visit Semicolon if you’re in Chicago!
