Personal Narrative: A Day Of Independence

Satisfactory Essays
On July 2, 1776, American achieved its independence from the British and was recognized as a country, but at this time slavery was still in full force. I do understand when someone tells me why celebrate a holiday if your people are still enslaved? I myself don’t really value the holiday as a freedom day, but I do still respect the sacrifices that were fought for my freedom. A lot of people on social media were voicing their harsh opinions regarding the holiday and don’t really observe it as a day of independence. I think there is a lot of awareness regarding the true meaning of the holiday and how black people don’t want to celebrate a holiday that has little to not meaning to them.
