3 Things to Remember on Juneteenth
by Sofia Thompson·
Today, red is more than a colorOn Juneteenth, red is more than a color. Red symbolizes the long history of suffering and perseverance of our people. Today and beyond, we remember them with Kinshasa, our Backless Mini Dress from the Pink Label Congo collection.
On Juneteenth, fellowship is essential (But remember to wear your mask)
We wish that social distancing and limited size gatherings weren’t a reality right now but, unfortunately they are. The good news is that you can still gather using CDC guidelines to celebrate Juneteenth with a few friends. Community is the bedrock of our heritage and Juneteenth is no different!
Lean into duality: You can be both disappointed and hopeful
It may feel insensitive to celebrate right now, when there is still so much hurt in our community. However, if we can learn anything from the past it is duality. After all, “Joy is an act of resistance.” Acknowledge the past, but remember to live in the present. Whether you’ve celebrated Juneteenth before or today for the first time, take time to celebrate freedom.
