Show Notes

On today’s Into the Fold we’re talking about Juneteenth, the federal holiday on June 19th that commemorates the day in 1865 that the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect in Texas. Also known as Emancipation Day, it's also an opportunity to celebrate African American mental health and resilience. Helping us do this is mental health advocate Tracy Yvette Green, an awardee of the New Voices Showcase in 2022 and current member of the Hogg Foundation Contributors Circle.
