Today, on the Hudson Mohawk Magazine we depart from our regular program to bring you a Juneteenth special. The segments in today’s episodes are all produced by our Roaming Labor Correspondent Willie Terry and were originally broadcast in 2019. We begin with a question: What is Juneteenth? Then, Willie Terry takes us to the 2019 Juneteenth Celebration of the Capital Region in Central Park in Schenectady and speaks with vendors. In today’s program Willie Terry interviews: Rachel Conn, Executive Director of the Hamilton Hill Art Center, the Center co-sponsored the event. Kareem Ture, poet and author of books: “Mahogany Scriptures” and “Chocolate Clouds.” Beverly Bar-de-quez, President of the Rapp Road Historical District about the History of the Rapp Road African-American Community in Albany. And Jacqueline Kane, author of “A Real Whole Lot: A WWII Soldier’s Love Letters to His Wife.”
