How Michelle Obama and More Stars Are Honoring Juneteenth 2021

Michelle Obama: “Let’s celebrate #Juneteen as a federal holiday, recognizing the generations of enslaved black people who fought so hard for their freedom. One of the best ways to do this is to strengthen our sacred right to vote Right now, we have the opportunity to stop dozens of voter suppression bills aimed at enacting voting reforms, expanding voting rights, and limiting access to the ballot box for people across the country by passing the #ForThePeopleAct. It’s up to each of us to work to protect our democracy and expand our reach. Voting rights. There’s a lot more on the line. Take action this weekend with @When We Allvote. To your senators Call and ask them to support #ForThePeopleAct.”

Porsche Williams: “People think the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves, but it was about 3 years later 156 years ago on June 19th by the resilience, fighting and patience of black people. Together we can. Let’s keep fighting. Uplift and give birth to a new nation.”

Sarah Hyland: “I was not educated on the subject of Juneteenth in school. I learned as an adult. I continue to educate myself on matters surrounding my country’s systemic racism, and I look forward to one day Where all children are taught the correct history of our past.”

tiffany hadisho: “Happy Juneteenth Everybody I hope you’re having fun in the sun while celebrating freedom.”

Tina Lawson: “Juneteenth or June 19th was a holiday long ago for my family! They started celebrating Juneteenth even before I was born. This short celebrates my deep Texas roots. I plan on Facebook to spread the word So happy to be a part of and to acknowledge this momentous day, that enslaved people in the South were freed. I encourage you to research and understand this important piece of history!!
