Eugene Puryear: Juneteenth and the Ongoing Fight for Freedom

In this special extended interview with Eugene Puryear, we talk about the upcoming commemoration of Juneteenth — the abolition of slavery. What does it mean to fight for freedom post-slavery? Plus, what does segregation look like today? How do things like gentrification and school choice fuel systemic racism under the guise of “progress?” Finally, reaching out to those on the inside is a vital part of commemorating Freedom Day. More on that and other events that seek to inspire, engage and build.
