SUMMARY: The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and other community members dedicated four weeks to cleaning up a neglected part of the Oak Cliff Cemetery, revealing graves of individuals born into slavery. On Juneteenth, volunteers honored these graves with flowers. The cemetery, previously overgrown, features headstones of Black Texans, some born as early as 1807. Led by the chapter president, Rosemary Balden, and the 10th Street Task Force's Larry Johnson, the project aims to uncover and honor local history. Their efforts are also helping families connect with their ancestors. Plans are in place to make this an annual Juneteenth tradition.

Hundreds of graves belonging to Black Texans, including many born into slavery, were covered by weeds and overgrown trees.

SUMMARY: Former President Donald Trump selected Ohio Senator JD Vance as his running mate for the 2024 presidential election. Vance, initially a critic of Trump, has become a strong supporter. The announcement occurred at the Republican National Convention, shortly after an assassination attempt on Trump. Vance, a Marine and Yale Law graduate, rose to fame with his book “Hillbilly Elegy.” In 2016, Vance criticized Trump but later aligned with his policies during his Senate campaign. President Biden called Vance a Trump “clone,” and Vance blamed Biden for the recent attempt on Trump's life. Trump will formally accept the nomination on Thursday.

Ohio Senator J.D. Vance was once a “Never Trump” Republican. On Monday, he was named Trump's running mate in the 2024 campaign.
