IATSE: Happy Juneteenth!

 

 

 

Juneteenth commemorates the day slaves in the U.S. were emancipated in 1865, more than two years after Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation proclamation was signed.

Every year after June 19 1865, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is celebrated as an Independence Day for African Americans to honor Black culture.

Today we join the Black community in honoring this historic day, as we encourage members to spend this day reflecting, learning and connecting.

May we continue to strive for equality, stand against racism and create change.
