We’re reclaiming our time.

For years, the enslaved people gave countless hours of free labor to their owners. Since emancipation, we have been making up for that lost time. So in true solidarity with our ancestors, it’s only right that we declare this to be a day free of labor.

Rest and Recharge — Grant yourself the grace and space to pause. Heal. Repeat.

Fellowship with Community — Whether it’s friends or family, gather with folk who bring out the best of you.

Play — Black joy is a form of resistance. Do it, and do it often.

Learn — about the Black experience and American history to cultivate empathy and dismantle white supremacy.

Here’s a start:
