2020 Juneteenth Cookout | Nik Snacks | #JuneteenthCookout

I’m participating in the 2020 Juneteenth Cookout Takeover. This initiative was established to encourage the celebration of Juneteenth – a jubilee of freedom to commemorate the end of slavery – and to amplify the food traditions of black culinary creatives.

Juneteenth is a portmanteau of the words "June" and "Nineteenth". The date marks the day in 1865 that the last of the enslaved Black people in America learned of their freedom.

And for over 150 years since, Black American families, cooks, chefs, and culinarians have commemorated this summer holiday with a wide range of food traditions that tell a story of the perseverance of a people.
