Juneteenth, known as Emancipation day, is the celebration of June 19, 1865, when the last group of enslaved African Americans who were aware of the Emancipation Proclamation that President Abraham Lincoln had signed two years ago.
Killing of an unarmed Black man by George Floyd on May 25 created a world-wide backwash. After the incident has just taken place, a revived interest has been seen in turning the Juneteenth day into a national holiday.

Maybe Crypto will return equal footing in economy to the Black entrepreneurs. We can use the existing systems around us indeed.
