Juneteenth is not only a celebration of freedom, but also one of opportunity, equity and access. Here are 5 ways you can honor & celebrate Freedom Day today:

1. Use it as a day of service
2. Support Black-owned businesses
3. Participate in essential conversations about race - and listen
4. Read or recommend books on Juneteenth or Black history
5. Advocate for changes and reform in inequitable policies, laws, & programs

Art: Wrought, Knit, Labors, Legacies by Olalekan Jeyifous. Once home to one of the largest domestic slave markets in the country, Alexandria’s early economy was inextricably tied to the work of enslaved and free African Americans. It later evolved from a village of farms and plantations to a prosperous port town. The installation alludes to the intertwined & complicated histories and rich future, and the ground mural was inspired by African American narrative quilt traditions.

"Struggle builds character. Often the moments in our life we are most proud of are the ones where we overcame adversity to accomplish something worthwhile. So honestly, I welcome adversity and I just push through it by working through it. I pray…a lot. I seek guidance from my mentor. Anything that doesn’t keep me down in the mental dumps long."

Today's Community is Diverse highlight is Katie Wells, owner of AR Workshop Alexandria. In 2016, Katie was working in a comfortable corporate role with a large consulting company. She had a working mom's dream with a great work/life balance and worked a comfortable 40 hour week. But that was it. It was comfortable. By the fall of 2016, she had signed a lease to open her Old Town location. With DIY-to-go kits, socially-distanced workshops, a wonderful gift shop, and even hosting private events, Katie has posed AR Workshop Alexandria as the area's DIY oasis.

Take a sneak peek at Katie's Q&A below, then head to oldtownboutiquedistrict.com/community-is-diverse-blog/Katie-wells for the full interview.

"For the most part, my ability to adapt and embrace what is. On the flip side, I think it can also be a flaw because I'm so quick to jump and take action that I fail to sit back and take a beat and assess and evaluate first. I've learned to recognize that and it's a work in progress. But, that is another question and interview story."
