Juneteenth for music lovers and coffee drinkers!

Juneteenth for music lovers and coffee drinkers!

Juneteenth is a important day in the coffee industry, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! As a musician and mixed race marriage partner I can see the connections between the struggles for freedom and justice in the alternative music scenes and the fight for equality that Juneteenth represents.

As a coffee entrepreneur, it's important to acknowledge that the coffee industry has a dark history, that needs to be acknowledged. It's tied to the exploitation of workers, including the slaves who were forced to toil on plantations. Juneteenth reminds us of the ugly truth that freedom was denied to so many for far too long.

But here's where we can make a change. Juneteenth is a call to action for the coffee industry and music fans to acknowledge its past and actively work towards a more inclusive and just future. It's about recognizing the contributions of African Americans in the industry and ensuring they get the recognition and respect they deserve.

Juneteenth gives us a chance to challenge the status quo and promote diversity and inclusion within the coffee industry. It's not just about ticking boxes or token gestures; it's about real change, real empowerment.

Let's use Juneteenth as a platform for education and awareness. Let's educate coffee consumers about the significance of this day, encouraging them to support African American-owned coffee businesses. Let's make sure the coffee industry provides equal opportunities for African American workers and breaks down the systemic barriers that have held them back for too damn long.

And while we're at it, let's kick some ass and support African American coffee growers. Let's demand fair trade practices, fair prices, and fair treatment for those who grow the beans we love to grind. Juneteenth can be a catalyst for economic empowerment and solidarity.

So, music lovers and coffee drinkers, let's embrace Juneteenth and make it a punk-rock rebellion against the injustices of the past. Let's make the coffee industry a shining example of what can be achieved when we stand together and fight for freedom, justice, and equality.
