Globally, a lack of medical oxygen–needed to treat pneumonia, malaria, and other diseases–leads to hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. @BernardOlayo founded @Hewa_Tele to address this often-overlooked challenge. https://t.co/TSea0oyDjP

This hero is playing a critical role in Kenya’s preparations to tackle COVID-19 by scaling up medical oxygen supplies that will be needed to keep the most critically ill patients alive. https://t.co/U2YcRgzSDA

“It’s that clarity of language about the VALUE of black life in America that distinguishes #Juneteenth as emancipation day. But our ability to live up to that ideal as a nation is best measured in, the days, weeks, and years that followed.” My latest: https://t.co/bxbvBtjrIe

"And I’ll never lose my faith that you and I can create an anti-racist America where racial disparities are nonexistent. Where Americans are no longer manipulated by racist ideas. Where Black lives matter." - @DrIbram accepting the 2016 #NBAwards for Nonfiction https://t.co/GSCYDTGcxB

When I think of emancipation, I think of all of the people who fought for freedom but who never got a chance to experience it. The end of slavery did not happen overnight, it came from intergenerational work by those who fought for a better world they knew they might never see.

Happy Juneteenth fam! My latest for the @TheAtlantic. Find joy today! The images from the article alone are giving me life! https://t.co/M4jUhglmaN @Wellesley @PennPress @imaniperry @CharlesWMcKinn2 @KeishaBlain @DrIbram @ashleysimpo

Thinking today about my great-grandfather & his family who were enslaved here in Montgomery County, Maryland (just about 25 miles from where I live). Seeking to honor their memory through working to dismantle systemic racism & advance justice. #Juneteenth https://t.co/2Q6CSfg2A9

“Only those feigning blindness fail to see the body of work we are, and the work of body we have done. Everything is what it is because of us. It is a misunderstanding to believe that free fell upon us like a blessing.“ - Patricia Smith #Juneteenth https://t.co/hMDytKAWbD

#Juneteenth recognizes & celebrates Black people’s freedom and the end of slavery in the US! 19 Jun 1865 Union Army General issued orders to free enslaved people in the retaken confederate territory of Texas 2 years after Lincoln signed the #EmancipationProclamation 1 Jan 1863.

It's time to end the silence about our history of racial injustice in America. #Juneteenth https://t.co/AlNI2ZdCx6

Proud to share my thoughts in @NewYorker’s “injustice issue” on (and for) our beloved young people I call the #TrayvonGeneration. https://t.co/XVojqSnERO

1. This is Opal Lee, the force behind the movement to make #Juneteenth a national holiday. Also known as Freedom Day, it is the day that commemorates when slavery officially ended in the USA. At 93, Mrs. Lee keeps banging the drum for the recognition of this day. https://t.co/qrs9im0YWl

For years, @Opalsw2dc has been working to get #Juneteenth recognized as a national holiday. She’s a social impact leader based in Fort Worth, Texas, and she joined The Takeaway to discuss Juneteenth's importance at this moment. LISTEN: https://t.co/iwog0sOwko

Opal is 93 years old and a great interview. Take a listen https://t.co/HWQYIQRoFQ

I am committed to listening and learning more about systemic racism and what I can do with my actions and words to help create a more equal and just future. Black lives matter.

…in policing, criminal justice, education, health care, housing, the workplace and all other areas of their lives.

The horrifying killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and far too many other Black people—and the protests they sparked—are shining a light on the brutal injustices that Black people experience every day…

Today world leaders pledged to fully support @gavi’s mission to give more children access to lifesaving vaccines and build a healthier world. We are grateful to the donors who made this moment possible and to @BorisJohnson and @DFID_UK for hosting a successful summit. https://t.co/Ei5WplgNBO

The video of George Floyd’s brutal death broke my heart. I’ve watched the protests that followed and have felt overwhelmed with solidarity. And I’m listening as Black advocates and activists call on every American to treat racial justice as a shared responsibility.

I continue to be inspired by all of the volunteers (including many retired health care workers and teachers) on the front lines of the fight against coronavirus each day. https://t.co/l38koBgE1P
