July 07, 2021
Juneteenth, short for June 19th, is now a federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. What does that mean for the Black community?
Today we talk to the leader of Indy Juneteenth to learn more about the importance of this new holiday. We also hear from a doctor who researches stroke prevention, and learn more about the delta variant of COVID-19.
