There are 7 comments on What Juneteenth Means to Me: a Photo Essay

  1. The reflection by Caleb Brownell is arguably the most bare-bones honest I have read among the bunch. We are still all finding our way. Thank you, Caleb, for the courage to share what is going on inside you. While I honor tremendously all of the other reflections, there are still so many of us trying to figure it all out. It is indeed a journey.

  2. I cannot stop rereading Caleb Brownell’s words. It gives a perspective that most people are too scared to voice. Caleb, thank you for bringing awareness to how Juneteenth is not just an excuse to have a party. It is a day that calls upon the reflection of a country that mistreated (and still does) black people. We still have much more improvement to make for black people in this country.

  3. I remember it well. Growing up in Houston and attending a black church evokes many memories! I had a great time here, and now that I’m an adult, I go to a different church called Lighthouse, https://g.page/r/CYyKpmC27DayEBA, but I have many lovely memories of my prior church and wish them the best!
