I learn so much from Dr. Tisby's Juneteenth teachings & writings. One county in Va has a Juneteenth celebration at Sully Plantation advertised as "Sully Historic Site." (Is Juneteenth a day "off" for our descendants of slaves from our race-based chattel slavery?) https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/juneteenth

I noted the Juneteenth Resiliency Award: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/topics/juneteenth-resiliency-award (Wouldn't that make for great college scholarships too!)

I hope we all have a meaningful Black-centered Juneteenth as a day "off" for our descendants of our formerly enslaved people.
