Bandcamp Juneteenth Fundraiser Recommendations

“Tomorrow, 19th June, is Juneteenth, an annual celebration of the day in 1865 when the enslaved peoples of Texas were freed by an enforced federal order, completing the work of the Emancipation Proclamation two years earlier and effectively making slavery in the United States of America abolished.  To mark the occasion, online music store Bandcamp will, for the 24-hour span (in Pacific Time), be donating their share of all sales made on the service to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, an organisation dedicated to fighting for and protecting the rights of racial minorities across America.  As per usual with Bandcamp, the rest of the sale share will be going directly to the artists themselves.  For those who can afford to, here is just a small curated selection of black artists with music and merch available on Bandcamp to purchase if you wish to partake in the event and help those who, especially in these uncertain COVID times, need it.”
