Next Wednesday, The Filter will give you a history lesson that centers on Juneteenth, chronicling racism from the 1800s to now. Hosts Vicky Díaz-Camacho and Ieshia Downton chat with two historians about the important milestones in history that stemmed from the emancipation proclamation to civil rights movements. Then we talk to a local organizer on the frontlines of the Black Lives Matter movement in the Kansas City area. 

Listen everywhere podcasts are available on June 24.
