[Michigan, JUNE 19, 2023]:
AHRC Wishes All Americans a Happy Juneteenth:
The American Human Council (AHRC-USA) joins the nation’s African Americans and all peace-loving people in celebrating the 158th Anniversary of Juneteenth. Juneteenth has been celebrated by African Americans since the late 1800s. President Joe Biden declared it a national holiday in 2021. It falls on June 19th annually.
Juneteenth is known as Independence Day or Freedom Day. It is a day to celebrate the end of slavery and the nation taking a big step to getting closer to living up to the promises made in its Declaration of Independence. It is a day to celebrate freedom and the achievements and contributions of African Americans to America.
On this occasion, AHRC renews its unwavering commitment to promote and advance human rights in America and abroad. The struggle of Black Americans and all people of color continue towards a world of peace and justice. This occasion coincides with a series of events (June Jubilee) that are planned in Detroit commemorating Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 60th Freedom Walk that was held in June 1963. Events will begin on June 22 and end on June 25th, 2023, in the city of Detroit, Michigan. We encourage everyone to attend these events.
“Juneteenth is a great day of celebration for the American Human Rights Council (AHRC), an organization that is comprised of all races and nationalities, an organization that celebrates and promotes fairness and justice for all,” said Judge Denise Langford Morris (Ret.), AHRC Advisory Board Member. “Juneteenth elevates our mission to eliminate injustice throughout the United States and the World,” added Judge Morris. “Let us love one another and strive for peace and freedom together,” concluded Judge Morris.
“It is important to acknowledge this often-overlooked part of American history,” said Judge David A. Perkins, Wayne County Probate Court judge and AHRC Advisory Board Member. “We must continue to educate and uplift, so all may actually be free,” added Judge Perkins.
‘Juneteenth is a day of celebration of the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. It is a promise of hope and healing from generational trauma as we forge towards a future of equality and promise of a better life,” said Dr. N. L. Thomas, AHRC Advisory Board Member.
“Juneteenth has taught us to carry three points,” said Judge Rebekah R. Coleman, 32nd District Court and AHRC Advisory Board member. “We must respect how powerful it is to share information and knowledge; and when communities align, history can be preserved,” added Judge Coleman. “Momentum is an accelerant, only when put in the proper vehicle,” concluded Judge Coleman.
