The nation is marking Juneteenth on Saturday. President Biden signed legislation this week, making the day a federal holiday. Many large corporations recognized Juneteenth on Friday with moments of silence, early closures, or a paid day off for employees. But to many, the day represents much more than that. Christina Ruffini has the latest. Each weekday morning, "CBS This Morning" co-hosts Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil deliver two hours of original reporting, breaking news and top-level newsmaker interviews in an engaging and informative format that challenges the norm in network morning news programs.
