Black leaders celebrate Juneteenth with powerful performances of their original essays
Author Jason Reynolds, musician Maimouna Youssef and teacher Christopher Emdin honor Juneteenth with short essays that they wrote and performed. Only on the CBS This Morning Podcast, Jericka Duncan facilitates a conversation with all three artists about their work, and what Juneteenth means to them personally. The group discusses why this day - the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy on June 19, 1865 - is so important. These essays and more will be featured on the Smithsonian Channel all Juneteenth weekend.
