Today we commemorate the date of June 19, 1865 commonly known as “Juneteenth” to honor the spirit and strength of those who finally received their freedom from chattel slavery in the state of Texas. Freedom for many enslaved in the United States was delayed for a full two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. I recently spoke with Jessica Larche with WTKR-3 News in Norfolk, Virginia about the psychological trauma, lineage PTSD associated with the legacy of slavery and its impact today.
