Juneteenth Roundtable
Guest Hosted by ABC7's Eric Thomas

Today's show features a special roundtable discussion in celebration of an important national commemoration known as "Juneteenth," which reminds each of us to remember the end of slavery in the United States.

Juneteenth also looks to the future of the African American community, with a focus on education and achievement.
