We have come a long way in eradicating the remnants of slavery in our actions and in our thoughts, however, the journey is not complete. I would strongly urge our leaders to declare June 19 as a mandatory National Holiday and also provide Slavery reparations to descendants of slaves. We need to make an earnest effort for a more fair, more equitable society.

I would much rather see a national holiday declared in honor of Frederick Douglass or Booker T. Washington than "Juneteenth". As for problem as long as the British, the Dutch, and the East African Muslims all pitch in.

Support local families in need

Your contribution to the Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund will go directly to nonprofits supporting local families and children in need. Last year, Pleasanton Weekly readers contributed over $83,000 to support eight safety-net nonprofits right here in the Tri-Valley.
