His mom was a cook, his dad a white man from an adjacent homestead. "In organization with my mom, sibling, and sister and countless slaves. I went to the expert\'s home. The greater part of our lord\'s family were either standing or situated on the veranda of the house, where they could see what was to occur and hear information disclosed. The most particular thing that I now review was that some man who appeared to be an outsider (a United States officer, I assume) made a little discourse and after that read a somewhat long paper – the Emancipation Proclamation, I think. After the understanding we were informed that we were all free, and could go when and where we satisfied. My mom, who was remaining close by, hung over and kissed her youngsters, while tears of bliss kept running down her cheeks. She disclosed to us what everything implied, this was the day for which she had been so long supplicating, yet expecting that she could never live to see." ~Excerpts from Booker T. Washington

"Confidence is the main component in an existence committed to benefit, Without it, nothing is conceivable. With it, nothing is Impossible." ~Mary McLeod Bethune I experienced childhood in a locale called the Mid-South, in the town of Paducah, KY around two hours north of Memphis. Juneteenth was not particularly celebrated in Paducah, but rather there was a day called "Homecoming" where individuals whose families left Paducah would get back home for BBQ, nourishment, fun and family get-togethers. This was commended on and was otherwise called "Eighth of August". In the days of yore it was called "Dominican Emancipation Day". The menu was pretty the same and like Juneteenth in Texas, it was the day that expression of opportunity achieved town. I recall numerous fun late spring parties on Homecoming day in Paducah when I was a child, despite everything I attempt to make it back there at regular intervals to see loved ones. ~ Darren V.
