Barack Obama was scheduled to speak today at the National Juneteenth Press Luncheon. Has anyone seen any coverage of the speech?

I know that, in the past, Sen. Obama has sponsored a resolution calling for a national observance of Juneteenth. I would love to know what he had to say.

Juneteenth is America's 2nd Independence Day celebration. 26 states recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday or state holiday observance, as well as the Congress of the United States.

Together we will see Juneteenth become a national holiday in Amemrica!
