Press release from: Pearl Long Term Solutions, Inc

Long-Term Care Booking Engine Company Pearl LTC Solutions

Pearl LTC Solutions, the booking engine for long-term care, today announced that the company would officially recognize June 19th as an official company holiday. The American holiday Juneteenth commemorates the date in 1865 that the last enslaved African Americans, in the state of Texas, were finally notified they were free. The company’s Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer Myisha Gatson, MPA, MBA, MFIN, a Senior Democracy Fellow at NAACP and President of the Stanford Entrepreneurship Club of Washington DC, also issued a challenge to the U.S. Congress, all 50 states and the District of Columbia, all U.S. corporations and all U.S. based Venture Capital firms to recognize this holiday in honor of the African Americans who have been and continue to be murdered and discriminated against because of the color of their skin and whose voice is carried in the Black Lives Matter movement.

"The Black Community is tired of having a knee on our necks as a result of being Black in America. The time has come for a reckoning between America and its Black citizens,” said Gatson. “Acknowledging Juneteenth as a National Holiday is a critical beginning to acknowledging the stain of slavery on the history of country and beginning to make amends with the Black community for decades of oppression and systemic inequality. There is still much work to be done, but this is an easy action for the U.S. Congress, All 50 states and the District of Columbia, all U.S. corporations and all U.S. based Venture Capital firms to take as a first step to acknowledge their commitment to righting the wrongs of the past.”

Juneteenth, “June” plus “nineteenth”, is widely considered a day to celebrate the legal emancipation of enslaved African Americans within the United States. Juneteenth took place on June 19, 1865, nearly two and half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862. The holiday was not officially recognized by any state within the U.S. before 2020 but has now become a new symbol of the awareness non-black communities are gaining within the U.S. of the continuous murder, violence and systemic racism African Americans still endure.

Pearl LTC Solutions Founder and CEO, Myisha Gatson, intends to make education and equity center points to the business, reminding all Americans that our past has created unequal opportunities, especially for our seniors. She presents a paper (link to paper at to help articulate the history and context leading to this iniquity. She asks that everyone reading this press release also take time to read the paper to understand where we have been as a nation and the work we have yet to do.
