Juneteenth: History and Food of the Celebration
President Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act making it an official holiday 154 years after it was first celebrated in Texas in 1866. And that was two years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Black people throughout America now embrace the official Juneteenth celebration on June 19th. One of HRN's OG podcast hosts, Nicole Taylor, joins me to talk about this very special holiday and to share recipes from her new cookbook, WATERMELON and RED BIRDS: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations.
