I remember back when I was a kid, it was a struggle to make MLK Day a reality… and it looks like we may now get Juneteenth too!
This community celebration of emancipation has become a touchstone during this time… yesterday, many businesses closed early or all day in its honor and there are celebrations across the country this weekend.
Governor Pritzker ordered Illinois flags to be lowered yesterday and it was also named Black Census Day – and if you didn’t complete your census form yet, it’s not too late. We’re lagging behind in responding and our future depends on this!
Our stations here at V103 and iHeart Chicago also announced our Brilliantly Black websites, supporting black businesses of all kinds… please check it out here.
& Remember to always celebrate your magic… Juneteenth & everyday! xo
