In a lot of ways I’m kind of surprised this isn’t a holiday in the USA, but this is america.

Omg noooo, I’m late if I would’ve seen this yesterday. I would’ve been so happy and proud. I felt like no one really celebrated or talk about it much. But just know we made it and we’re still here!! :fist:t5::heart:

June 19 is a holiday in a lot of states, but it’s barely acknowledged anymore. It should definitely be a national holiday in the US, but that would mean that racists and some politicians would have to recognize and address this awful history, but they don’t want to because they’re still trying to drag the country back to the 1800s.

Unfortunately, we didn’t learn this in school, so I wasn’t aware this day existed until a few years back. This should be taught, it is an important day that marks national history.

Hey that’s ok. I didn’t learn it in school either, and I’m from the states. I didn’t know it existed until yesterday. Glad I know tho.
