Back in 1971, one of my high school buddies and I were going to school at various junior colleges in the area while still living at home with our parents. His afternoon job was working as a nurse's aide at the Galveston County Hospital. He worked with a number of black nurses and doctors so they invited him to a Juneteenth BBQ. He did not want to go alone so took me along. I had no idea what Juneteenth was but I got educated all about it there. We had a great time and returned the next year. Great food and great people.
