With Juneteenth now our newest official federal holiday, ABC’s Soul of a Nation franchise devotes two hours to a celebration of the historic emancipation day with special performances and news features. GMA’s Michael Strahan interviews former President Barack Obama about his latest book A Promised Land, discussing race and resilience. Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. guest-hosts the special, with performances by Jimmie Allen, Chloe Bailey (of Chloe x Halle) and Leon Bridges. Other segments include Deborah Roberts’ look at soul food and Black cuisine, and Kenneth Moton’s report on the struggles of Black farmers.
