Friday on "The Talk@Home," rapper and actor Ludacris opens up about his Kid Nation organization, new song "Get Along," which encourages unity and the importance for celebrating Juneteenth. "This Juneteenth is going to be more emotional than any Juneteenth thus far. And, I think a lot of people are getting educated that may not have understood exactly what Juneteenth was about." Ludacris adds, "It is a reminder that our ancestors did not give up hope. You're going to make me emotional talking about this. There's so much that can be said in terms of when slavery ended, and how we were left with nothing but - just rise above it and continue to make something of ourselves and just the history of greatness and them not giving up. People just need to celebrate that... whether, if you're having a celebration, the same as the Fourth of July, in terms of freedom, because Juneteenth is my Fourth of July."
