I was glad to see the story of Mr. Pace who had one hell of a life,but made it. Even though he went aganist the wishes of his family that would have kept him behind time. I have talked to many New England people and they never heard of JUNETEENTH. These are some very smart educated people I have talked to, one man in Ct. who is 84 never heard of such a celebration. I know this one black gentleman that knew about it and he is from Mississippi. I will make sure and tell many about his story so they can see there is really a JUNETEENTH.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
