#TheBounceBackRDU commemorates the resilient spirit of African Americans and celebrates Juneteenth. 
#TheBounceBackRDU features eight African Americans sharing stories about a time they fell down but didn’t stay down - they bounced back. The series is produced by Alexus Rhone, founder of Truth Meet Story, LLC, in partnership with Raleigh Arts and SEEK Raleigh.
