Juneteenth

June 19th represents the day, in 1865, when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing slaves in the 11 confederate states that had broken away from the Union.

 

Later that year, the 13th Amendment was made the law of the land, formally abolishing slavery in the United States of America. Since that year, Juneteenth (June 19th) has been a day where Black people celebrate our emancipation, freedom, and independence.
