Juneteenth

JUNETEENTH

“On June 19, 1865, known as Juneteenth—a melding of the day’s month and date—the last remaining slaves in America were declared free. Juneteenth, America’s ‘second Independence Day,’ is now celebrated around the country. It is officially observed in 43 states and is a state holiday in Texas, home of the last to know.” –Laura Saunders Egodigwe
