Duchess Harris on Juneteenth

"African Americans in the Twin Cities often embrace Paul Laurence Dunbar's concept of wearing the mask," said author and Macalester College Prof. Duchess Harris, quoting a famous poem: " 'We wear the mask that grins and lies' — that's how we survive the workplace. Juneteenth, as a holiday, is an opportunity to put the mask down and wear your real face."
