Dr. James Tucker, of the African American Voice and co-founder of Art 2063, mentioned Cori Bush and the Black Caucus during the First Annual Juneteenth Caribbean Heritage Walkathon on June 19, 2021 on the Cricket Field in Forest Park Forever in St. Louis.
Dr. Meyers would be excited that Juneteenth is a National Holiday. But he would be disappointed that the legislation did not have teeth.
The legislation is only going to benefit, is the sentence of slave owners. And as a result of that, I encourage Cori Bush, the Black Caucus and all the other legislators for the Juneteenth national holiday is to make sure that African American benefit from being in slavery.Dr. James Tucker
