In honor of the national holiday, we watched this film. The level of financial strife and family dynamics keeps the tension high throughout. The film ends on a satisfying note. The women actors are excellent throughout, and there are many.
Guest appearance by Opal Lee, who we have to thank for the tireless campaign sets of 2-1/2 miles for Juneteenth as a national holiday. Also, some history around the holiday is discussed throughout the Miss Juneteenth rehearsals.
