This BONUS episode is a rough American history of events between 1619 and 1865 that lead up to Juneteenth. Many of the important factors are spoken about from slavery to emancipation. More work to do but we are all very hopeful for our future. Let's make Juneteenth a National Holiday!! #juneteenth
Host J. Quinten navigates the sometimes heated waters of race based terms and crime statistics. This is not a denial of crime by anyone or any group. This is an acceptance that all races and groups commit violent crimes against others of their same group (Intraracial). This episode is more about the use of terms and its impact on us all as Americans. Let's have a growth mindset as we enjoy this episode of learning.

We explore the largely untold story of a neighborhood in Tulsa, OK in 1921. In the town of Greenwood approximately 300 U.S. citizen residence were massacred in less than 24 hours. Hear how 19 year old Dick Rowland unintentionally ignited a powder keg of hate, death, and total destruction.
Remember our American past so we may have the American future we want for our children.
Hosted, as always, by J. Quinten
