41: On Juneteenth: A Discussion with McGlinchey’s African American Affinity Group
Play • 20 min

Juneteenth is the oldest commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. In the latest episode of More with McGlinchey, we present a recording of an internal panel discussion between members of McGlinchey’s African American Affinity Group on the novel “On Juneteenth” by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Annette Gordon-Reed. It provides a historian’s view of the country’s long road to Juneteenth, recounting both its origins in Texas and the enormous hardships that African-Americans have endured in the century since, from Reconstruction through Jim Crow and beyond. Thank you to Camille Bryant (New Orleans), Kerry Cummings (Fort Lauderdale) and Farren Davis (New Orleans) for the insightful discussion!
