Critical Resistance invites you to "Celebrating Juneteenth! An Abolitionist Perspective on Movements for Black Liberation Past and Present"
Critical Resistance (CR) is proud to present "Celebrating Juneteenth! An Abolitionist Perspective on Movements for Black Liberation Past and Present," a virtual event and fundraiser with Charlene Carruthers and Marc Lamont Hill.
Two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued ordering states in the confederacy to release their slaves, Black people in Texas achieved their liberation from chattel bondage. On June 19, 1865, General Order Number 3 was read from the Ashton Villa balcony in Galveston, Texas, that demanded that slaveholders free their slaves.
