Tim Cook Tweeted his own support for Juneteenth earlier today.
It took more than two years for those enslaved in Texas to learn they were free in 1865. The story of America is the story of Black Americans. We can’t forget where we’ve been if we hope to get where we all want to go. #JuneteenthIt took more than two years for those enslaved in Texas to learn they were free in 1865.
