Espresso Talk Today

Jun 17, 2022

Harambee! The Espresso Talk Today team is celebrating Juneteenth! We present an original, based-on-fact story read by Marlene Slaughter. In the second part, Elder Mel reads a narrative by her great-grandaunt, Miss Rosina Hoard who had been enslaved in Texas. We also discuss the meaning of Juneteenth, the commercialization of this cherished holiday, and what the United States needs to do to ensure equality, justice, and freedom for all! Get comfortable and join our celebration. Enjoy Nina Simone singing "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free."
