“Let’s make Juneteenth commemorative, not of the horrific institution our country embraced, but rather as a showcase of the strength in the American spirit to recognize wrong and set about making it right. In this same spirit, let’s continue to level playing fields and work towards [greater equality and an inclusive society.]” — John Albuquerque
