The anniversary of the Stonewall Riots is an important part of recognizing the efforts of LGBT activists in their fight for equality in the U.S. On June 28th, 1969 the modern gay rights movement was sparked by a Police raid on a gay bar called the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village in New York City. Patrons who’d grown tired of relentless persecution by Police rose up and began spontaneous and violent riots that lasted several days. These riots galvanized the community and were the catalyst for the formation of the some of the very first LGBT rights organizations. A year later in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York marches planned to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall riots evolved into what we now know as Gay Pride Parades. Today, June is recognized as LGBT Pride month around the world in recognition of those bar patrons who launched a civil rights movement 45 years ago this month.
K-O-O-P is recognizing this anniversary as one of its Celebration Events with special News and Public Affairs and music programming. Listen in for this unique programming from K-O-O-P, radio for people, not for profit.
Juneteenth, held this year on Thursday, June 19th, is a state holiday in Texas and the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Slavery played a significant part in Texas, the seventh state to join the confederacy. President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in January of 1863 declaring, "that all persons held as slaves" within the thirteen rebellious territories "are, and henceforward shall be free." It was not until two and a half years later, on 19 June 1865, when federal troops under General Granger arrived at Galveston Island that the Emancipation Proclamation was enforced.
Since then, Juneteenth has been celebrated in Texas to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture. Here at K-O-O-P we will be recognizing Juneteenth as a celebration event throughout the month of June with special News and Public Affairs and music programming. Mark this important occasion in your own way and listen in all month for great programming from K-O-O-P, radio for people, not for profit.
