Its Juneteenth 2022! A Celebration of Freedom by DDS

"If you are tired, keep going. If you are scared, keep going. If you are hungry, keep going. If you want to taste freedom, keep going."
-Harriet Tubman

DDS is a proud black woman-owned business and over the years we have raised our voices for the community on all platforms including churches, seminars or any public speaking event. Juneteenth means to black community is to what 4th of July means to all the Americans. The emancipation of thousands of enslaved in 1865 marks the beginning of Juneteenth. June 19, 2022 is the second annual federal holiday. Organizers across the country are holding a week-long celebration to mark the end of slavery in the United States and to expand the ongoing struggle for equality and justice. Although June 19 was recently declared a national holiday, many African American communities have celebrated it for generations. It took years of hard work to get federally approved holiday.

You can be a part of the grand celebration happening at Long Beach, CA: The Long Beach Juneteenth Celebration

Read "On Juneteenth" by Annette Gordon-Reed

Harriet Tubman very well said: Every dream begins with a dreamer. Juneteenth is not just a holiday has it has multiples emotions attached to it, of hope, of freedom of unity of basic human rights. It freed the souls of the innocent enslaved people and their generations to come. On this day, we remember the unending struggles and sacrifices of our ancestors who worked painstakingly on the road of freedom. Maya Angelou very well states in her poem:

"You may write me down in history

With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I’ll rise."
