Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19th, marks the day in 1865 when enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas, were informed of their freedom, more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. This day represents a crucial moment in American history and is a time to honor the end of slavery in the United States.


Juneteenth is not only a celebration of freedom but also a recognition of the struggles, resilience, and contributions of African Americans throughout history. It serves as a reminder of the ongoing journey towards equality and justice for all.


Many communities celebrate Juneteenth with various activities, including educational events, cultural performances, and family gatherings. It is a day to reflect, educate, and celebrate the rich history and culture of African Americans.


Understanding this important part of our history helps us to appreciate the diverse experiences and contributions that shape our society. The struggles the black community has faced and still faces is a matter for everyone to be a part of and to resolve. Slowly but surely, many things have changed since slavery was abolished, but the truth is that the fight hasn’t stopped just yet. As a community, we have to face the ugliness our history has, and make sure that history NEVER repeats itself. Here is one of many links if you would like to take a deeper dive:
