TORRINGTON — Dr. Delois Lindsey attended Saturday morning’s Juneteenth Mayor for the Day celebration, a new honor awarded to resident Shante Reynolds, in City Hall.
“It’s an honor to my ancestors to see this move forward, for my grandkids, for the next generation,” she said. “We have to stay on this and keep it moving. More young people should be engaged, because we don’t know our own history. If we don’t, we’ll never move forward. We need to rectify that … we need to understand what Juneteenth is, protect it. We have to get it right.”
