ways to celebrate June 19th in a nursing home.

Juneteenth has been a back and fourth decision for me. As a white women, I don't want to ignore this holiday. Also as a white women, I don't think I should plan this without a POC. As Juneteenth is a new age holiday, and the majority of the residents in my facility are old age, it doesn't make this holiday or celebration any less important. Especially considering I am in a predominantly black city. We have chosen to do Juneteenth education and trivia, as well as celebrating with red velvet cake (I read that is a signature dessert for this holiday.)
