Today in Global Small Business: Have a Proud Juneteenth

What's affecting me, my clients, my colleagues and other global small business owners:

  • Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement.  Have a happy and proud one.
  • As the nation celebrates Juneteenth, it’s time to get rid of these three myths about slavery.
  • The complicated history of Juneteenth.
  • Quote of the week:  “"Juneteenth has never been a celebration of victory or an acceptance of the way things are. It's a celebration of progress. It's an affirmation that despite the most painful parts of our history, change is possible—and there is still so much work to do." – Barack Obama
  • When did slavery end?  The answer is elusive.
  • Juneteenth became a federal holiday two years ago. What does the day commemorate?
