If you haven't had the chance to visit the Black Heritage Trail in Portsmouth, yet, you can beat the heat and do so virtually at http://blackheritagetrailnh.org. There are all kinds of fascinating things planned this weekend, so check it out!
The fight for freedom continues, and we are all part of the solution...Happy Juneteenth, Everybody! sm
