Celebrating Fathers, Seeking Jubilee on Juneteenth This Weekend

Juneteenth is celebrated during “Fathers’ Day Weekend”…

While President Johnson is credited with the passage of the 50 year old legislation celebrated today, it was Conservative Congressman Bill McCullough who accomplished the feat of uniting political parties to pass the bill.
