Juneteenth Freedom Day & Remembering A Legend

Yesterday we celebrated Juneteenth (June 19th), commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and reflect on the ongoing struggle for justice and equality. As Martin Luther King Jr. once famously said, "justice denied is justice delayed." His quote captures the delayed freedom experienced by an emancipated people.

We also mourned the passing of baseball legend Willie Mays. An iconic Negro League member of the Birmingham Black Barons, Mays debuted in the MLB with the Giants and won Rookie of the Year in 1951. "THE GOAT" in all the ways that matter, Mays contributions to the sport and society are unmatched and will continue to inspire generations to come.
