Indianapolis Children's Museum Serves "Juneteenth Watermelon Salad"
Juneteenth is a holiday that takes place in the United States to commemorate the emancipation of African-American slaves in 1865. It is also a day on which African-Americans celebrate their culture. Juneteenth, celebrated every year on June 19, became a federal holiday last year after the Senate unanimously voted on it.
The celebration is meant to recognize the great things African Americans have contributed to society, but some people aren’t getting the memo. Today, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis caught some backlash after they gave out a specific dish that has racist connotations. Pictures of a tray with the label “Juneteenth Watermelon Salad” have been circulating on social media.
