East Region Inaugural Gathering 17 August 2019

Kudos to the East Region for its Inaugural Gathering under the leadership of East Region President Che’ Frost and Vice President Felicia Jernigan.

I had the pleasure of attending the East Region’s Inaugural Gathering on 17th August. In addition to great food and fun, it was inspiring watching the very, very young cousins interacting with one another, getting to know one another, playing and teasing one another - the Legacy Continues!

In an age in which we mostly communicate and learn through technology, in-person gatherings can feel like a rare, inspiring treat.

Continue the Legacy - "Stay in Touch with One Another"

A BIG thank you to Felicia for successfully coordinating this event and to Che’ for hosting it in her lovely home.

In Broadous and Christ's Love,
Bernardean Broadous, BOD Chairman

The proclamation reaches the South where a family of slaves receives news of their emancipation.

The proclamation reaches the South where a family of slaves receives news of their emancipation.

There is a common misconception among Americans that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves with a stroke of his pen. Yet the Emancipation Proclamation, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 1863, did no such thing — or, at least, it didn't do a very good job of it. Two and a half years later, on June 19, 1865, Union soldiers sailed into Galveston, Texas, announced the end of the Civil War, and read aloud a general order freeing the quarter-million slaves residing in the state. It was truly a day of mass emancipation. It has become known as Juneteenth.
