TO FREE OURSELVES WE MUST FEED OURSELVES

Statement from Juneteenth Broadcast Presenters

In 1965, James Baldwin wrote to his nephew: “The country is celebrating one hundred years of freedom one hundred years too soon.” In the 55 years since, as anyone with eyes can see from the storm which continues to rage about our heads, very little has changed. We continue on a steady, centuries-long course, of systemic exploitation.
