Juneteenth-Remembered

| No TrackBacks

It appears that the holocaust that was inflicted upon peoples of African ancestry has found its place in the mainstream media.

I'm not certain if it is combination of the past failed attempts to offer reparations to a sizeable percentage of disenfranchised African-Americans or is it a liberal media campaign aimed at correcting past wrongs.

One thing is certain. The lynchings were a very graphic representation of the importance of Juneteenth effort. The courageous work of Ida B. Wells and others helped put an end to this barbaric behavior. I missed an opportunity to see a local exhibit which provided a historical perspective on the lynching holocaust. Nonetheless, I am clear that none of the events of the black holocaust should ever be dismissed or forgotten.
