#5Things: This week in social

Over the last 2 years we have experienced our nation’s increased interest in the history of Juneteenth and the events that took place. Juneteenth is representative of June 19th, the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all African American enslaved people were freed.
On this week’s episode, we discuss: 

The History of Juneteenth
Where we are now
Corporatization of the holiday
The future of Juneteenth
Action steps both agencies and brands can take moving forward.

The conversation is candid, yet passionate.  This episode features strong language, and listener discretion is advised. 
We hope you will listen with open ears and an open heart.
