Today, We Celebrate Juneteenth
Today, we celebrate Juneteenth. For Black Americans, June 19th has long been a day of remembrance and affirmation. Now, more than 150 years later, there’s a nation-wide movement for observance.
What is JUNETEENTH?
Juneteenth commemorates the day when Texas slaves learned slavery had ended with the Emancipation Proclamation — which President Abraham Lincoln had signed two and a half years earlier.
