Candi Phillips of Rosenberg, Texas dressed as a slave during a Juneteenth ceremony hosted by Attack Poverty on Saturday, June 17th in North Rosenberg, Texas. She sang a song about change and changed out of her slave clothing and shackles into a graduation gown and then a doctor’s white lab coat — all possible, she says, thanks to God’s love. Phillips also had on display a large collection of authentic slave shackles, leg bracelets and chains, as well as original slave auction posters and newspaper clippings.
