There are 3 comments on 10 Powerful Books for Adults, Teens, Kids to Celebrate and Understand Juneteenth

  1. While this list is wonderful and showcases a range of perspectives, I do wish for more fiction, be it graphic novel or traditional, centered on Juneteenth for an adult audience. Almost everything available for Adults on this subject are Non-Fiction and I believe that it is time to empower and encourage historical fiction that celebrates and examines this slice of American life. What comes to mind is a masterful work like Octavia Butler’s Kindred, and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander.
