2022-06-27T16:11:52-07:00

She could have been “pushed out” of school or arrested that day for fighting. Today, Dr. Morris said, [...]

That news came late—two and half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was ratified on January 1, 1863. In 2021, the swift passage of bills that created the holiday did not allow time for Fielding to officially observe Juneteenth (a blend of [...]
