Today in History and Related Fellowship

Here in the United States, June 19th marks an important milestone in our history and commemorates efforts to increase equality.  Juneteenth, as the holiday is known, celebrates the June 19th, 1865 statement by General Gordon Granger that the Emancipation Proclamation would be enforced by the troops then occupying Texas.  In these days of instant news and online activism, it is hard to believe that it could take over two years for slavery to be completely abolished.  If you are interested in using today’s media to address crucial global issues, check out the Fulbright National Digital Storytelling Fellowship.  For this or other national fellowships, please feel free to contact me for assistance.
