Juneteenth Federal Holiday Meditation 2022

Today's Google Doodle is illustrated by Jerome and Jeromyah Jones, father and son.

Here is their website.


“When you hear me play that long intro, it’s me stalling. I was thinking, ‘What the hell am I going to sing?’ I think the word ‘freedom’ came out of my mouth because I saw it in front of me. I saw the freedom that we were looking for. And every person was sharing it, and so that word came out.”


"...  this is the ballad of our freedom the day you realize we are more than free.  We are loved."

-- Kevin Burns, Jr., on Juneteenth 2021

It's about fucking time this was made a holiday. Here in Canada we are finally understanding what has been done to the Indigenous people of this country and what that means for both Indigenous people and the country as a whole.
