Earlier in the week, the Detroit Lions officially recognized today, June 19—”Juneteenth”—as a permanent organizational holiday. The holiday commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.
So the Lions Twitter account spent the day giving a platform to some former Lions players to share their thoughts on the holiday and race in America.
"I am very hopeful we're on the road, now, to June 19 becoming a national holiday in this country." - Robert Porcher pic.twitter.com/lsvzXFNQGy— Detroit Lions (@Lions) June 19, 2020
Note: The Lions have been adding videos all throughout the day. I will do my best to continually add to this article as they release more videos.
