Stevie Wonder celebrated Juneteenth last Friday (June 19), but he wasn't quite jumping for joy.
He urged his fans to keep the momentum of the movement going in his YouTube video from today (June 23) titled "The Universe Is Watching Us." And Wonder certainly let some state officials, as well as President Donald Trump, know he was watching them closely.
"It's a bad day when I can see better than your 2020 vision," the blind singer-songwriter quipped in the five-minute video message. He called out North Dakota, South Dakota and Hawaii for being the only three states to not officially recognize Juneteenth, the day slavery ended in America. "How did it feel to celebrate freedom that we're still fighting for? Hm, it felt and feels too familiar. I know that dance, I've heard those songs," Wonder recalled about the struggle to officially put Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday on the American calendar.
