Your History-teller: Shaunda Lewis The Decolonization Coach ___________ DELAYED LIBERATION: THE TRUE STORY OF EMANCIPATION IN THE UNITED STATES SESSION DESCRIPTION: The narrative that we are told in social studies class growing up in the United States is that President Lincoln “freed the slaves” through his signing of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. While this is legally true, many enslaved people throughout the confederacy intentionally weren't alerted of their freedom until months and years later; the last of them being in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865. This was two years and six months after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after Robert E. Lee surrendered the Confederacy to the Union (the end of the Civil War). Many in the African American community have recognized June 19th as a holiday since then, but it is not until our recent reckoning on racism in the US that Juneteenth is now recognized as a federal holiday. Come learn about how this all came to be, and build your personal and collective awareness of one accurate piece of US history. Gain a deeper awareness of what it means to be free in the United States of America. FROM THIS SESSION YOU'LL GAIN: • Deeper social awareness through exploring one story of emancipation that culminates in what is now the Juneteenth holiday. • A more accurate imprint of a piece of US history • A deeper appreciation of what it means to be free in the United States of America • Motivation to support Liberation in all its forms • Resources to continue learning and reflecting beyond the session SESSION STRUCTURE: Virtual 90-minute Session (zoom details will be sent via the email you provide to book the session) • 60-minutes of Story-telling • 30-minute Debrief/Question & Answer Session • Post session materials sent beyond the session with access to the session recording for those who missed the live session.
