I greatly appreciate the time and research Ms. Joseph presented in this seminar. She was able to explain Juneteenth in a way for the uninitiated (me) to understand and for the non-Black listener (me) to accept the challenges, hardships, suffering, prejudice, whitewashing, and history of the US Black community. White denial was presented in a manner that was thoughtful and unflinching, without leaving me feeling offended in my desire to learn more. An excellent opportunity to learn more from someone who experiences prejudice in a way that fills some of the educational gaps that are part of the non-Black educational and societal aspects of the US. Happy Juneteenth! What took us so long to get here?
I enjoyed Dr. Joseph's "conversation very much. Having grown up in Texas I knew the history and all my "growing up" years I enjoyed the celebration. I have been surprised to note how many African Americans here in Oxford, MS didn't know its importance or really knew of its existance until recently.. I think her talk informative and she's right - history has been lacking when it comes to our racial issues.
