To celebrate Juneteenth and the one-year anniversary(!) of HELLO SOMEBODY, Senator Turner asks us to reflect on what motivates us to be free, how we are defining the word “freedom” in the 21st Century, and the symbolization of Juneteenth and the emancipation of enslaved people in the confederate states. Settle in for this solo episode where SNT embraces you with a personal message of renewal, recognition, and celebration.Links:
