A Convocation is a calling together of people, often to give out accolades and awards, except I'm Convocating Convocations so it's a Convocation of Juneteenths!
Juneteenth is commemorating a day in the past when a person said the words to other folks that declared a true thing to be true due to the actions of some other people on different days.
J. Otis Powell! is an ancestor who walks with me a lot and makes me laugh with their audacity so I learn my lessons well.
Dubious means sus, sketch, unreliable, flaky and not to be depended on. Mad questionable.
Holiday is a day of festivity and celebrating when no work is done. A vacation.
What exactly are you/am I celebrating?
Am I/are you not working? Especially if we are culture creators, culture bearers, emancipators, elaborators and abolitionists? Even if we are not?
The folks facilitating your/my Juneteenth are actually expecting your/my engagement. I'm expecting your/my engagement in my/our own liberation.
Join me as I CONVOCATE - yes CELEBRATE - INTONATE - INTIMATE - EDUCATE myself -AND REVELATE in my/our FREEDOM!
