Why celebrate Juneteenth?
M’Reld Green says “Our Blackness must be celebrated, for those that waited and waded in waters, who refused the same fate for their sons and daughters.”
In this powerful new piece from Greenpeace’s “What We Need Now Podcast,” the Chicago poet evokes “Malcolm, Mumia and those that fought for freedom” as she connects struggles of the past to hope for the future.
“What We Need Now,” the new monthly podcast by Greenpeace USA, is where you can learn about the work grassroots leaders are doing from the leaders themselves. Each episode, the hosts explore a different topic related to the intersections of climate, racial and environmental justice, and our movement for a green and peaceful future, and pass the mic to local leaders who are fighting for the world we want to see.
