Happy Juneteenth guys, I delayed this post intentionally to celebrate our beautiful dope queens on the day of freedom! A quick history of why this day is important to black people in America ESPECIALLY in this time. Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It was on June 19, 1865 that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with the news that the war had ended. They also announced that all those who were enslaved were now free. Now mind you this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation was signed and became official January 1, 1863.
So today we about to be Blackity Black Black in celebration today and shoutout some dope queens who are selling some dope headwrap pieces.
