Juneteenth: a celebration with Reverend Jesse Jackson 19 June is Juneteenth – the day that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States in 1865. Iconic civil rights activist Reverend Jesse Jackson, along with three of his children – Yusef, Santita and Jonathan – shares how he educated them about race in America. Join them for a history lesson that charts Galveston, Jim Crow laws, 1965 voting rights and Reverend Jackson’s Selma march with Martin Luther King. They’ll also discuss the future they want to see: one where police brutality is recognised as ‘the epidermis of the problem’ and where we need to move beyond freedom towards equality.
