    Juneteenth 2022

    June 15, 2022

    Celebrate Liberate Educate #Juneteenth

    Juneteenth (recognized on June 19th) honors the end to slavery in the United States and is considered the longest-running African American holiday. In 2021, congress officially passed a bill making it a federal holiday — after gaining momentum after the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 according to CNN.

    In observance of Juneteenth, our Sol Family is dedicating more time toward self-education and moments of deep reflection to recognize the progress made — and the progress we will continue to make as we fight for racial equality together.

    Join us as we honor Black Americans in every area of endeavor andthroughout history this Juneteenth and beyond.

    • Movies:
      Miss Juneteenth (Hulu), 13th (Netflix), When They See Us (Netflix), (In)visible Portraits (Amazon Prime Video), Black is King (Disney+), Watchmen (HBO Max/Go).
    • Books:
      “Call Us What We Carry” by Amanda Gorman, “On Juneteenth” by Annette Gordon-Reed, “A Black Women’s History of The United States” by Daina Ramey Berry and Kali Nicole Gross, “The Color of Law” by Richard Rothstein.
    • Podcasts:

    I’ve been a fan and user of your products for a couple years… but moreso a fan, now! This is meaningful, thank you.
