Juneteenth: The Day God Came "The Day God Came" describes how a prayerful black woman kept her family from losing hope during their years in slavery. Told through the eyes of her young son, this story offers an important and timely message for children of all ages. It not only educates them about the history of Juneteenth and the end of slavery in the United States, but also highlights the power of community, resilience, and faith.
This is a story about freedom - the same freedom we today take for granted. This is a book about faith - the type of faith which makes nothing seem impossible. Through vivid imagery and heartfelt storytelling, "The Day God Came" brings to life the story of Juneteenth, the day that marked the end of slavery in the United States. This book is a must-read for parents, educators, and anyone who wants to teach children about the significance of Juneteenth and the ongoing struggle for racial justice in America. With Juneteenth now recognized as a national holiday, "The Day God Came" is a timely and essential addition to any child's bookshelf.
