June - 19 - 2024


Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. Celebrated on June 19th, the holiday marks the day in 1865 when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced that all enslaved people were to be freed, two and a half years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. It is a day for reflection, education, and the celebration of African American culture and freedom.
