Thanks to the incomparable Roots and ABC’s Blackish — here’s an animated, and more digestible explanation of Juneteenth.


What better way to celebrate the freedom of Black Americans than with lyrics from the freest African Americans we know: The Carters.


Bey and Jay released their highly anticipated, surprise duet album Everything Is Love over the weekend — and you can’t have a Hov and Bey album without them dropping hella gems about Black Excellence.

Check out these lyrics from Everything Is Love that would make perfect Juneteenth tweets and IG captions.
