Have you heard of a holiday called Juneteenth? Do you know what it is, or why it's important in American history? Well, listen here - this is the episode for you. This is straight-up history - Ancestry.com is on the blink, so we're steering clear of Ancestry lessons for a few weeks in order to let them get themselves together again. And since there's a holiday to discuss, why not use the opportunity to learn in a whole new way? We've got quotes from the Emancipation Proclamation and General Order #3, from Henry Louis Gates Jr and from an array of private researchers who were good enough to lend us their views and understanding of Juneteenth. Grab your Faygo Red Pop. It's time to learn!
