Juneteenth and the Transatlantic Slave Trade

Interesting and informative story of one of the more underappreciated historical holidays in this country. Your tie in with your visit to London and our historical bonds we have to this shameful legacy of the time is especially poignant.

Anyway, since you're in London I would luv, luv, luv to see a piece on the revitalization of Canary Wharf.

Thanks! I walked around and took quite a few pictures for a potential story. The museum also had a pretty good exhibit on the history of Canary's transformation.

Great and Informative article, Ennis! I will definitely seek out the museum/area the next time that I have some free time in London later this year.

No problem. It's definitely worth checking out. The museum is free and there are a ton of things to do at Canary Wharf.
