Today we celebrate Juneteenth, the oldest national celebration of the abolishment of slavery in the United States.
Here is what prompted Juneteenth according to the New York Times:
On June 19, 1865, about two months after the Confederate general Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox, Va., Gordon Granger, a Union general, arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform enslaved African-Americans of their freedom and that the Civil War had ended. General Granger’s announcement put into effect the Emancipation Proclamation, which had been issued more than two and a half years earlier on Jan. 1, 1863, by President Abraham Lincoln.
As an active supporter for the educational equity of ALL African American Students we remember and honor the brave fight by thousands of African American advocates against the systemic racism that still exists today in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD).
District Deeds is on your side and will do our best to help you fight for your legally and ethically required educational rights against the corrupt SDUSD.
We thank all of our African American comrades for their courage in this fight!
Have a wonderful Juneteenth!!!
