Juneteenth (Holidays) – Booklist
Presenting information as straightforwardly as possible, this entry in the Holidays series centers around Juneteenth, a day that commemorates the end of slavery. A variety of festive photographs and a few pieces of period artwork break up the text and reinforce key concepts. In an age overloaded with tertiary holidays, here’s a fine book to help introduce a celebration that warrants a bigger public profile.

This title succeeds where others have been undermined by cultural bias. An excellent addition.
