The History of Juneteenth
Juneteenth is now a National Holiday and is the oldest known celebration commemorating the emancipation of slavery in the state of Texas. Historically, the celebration falls on June 19th and commemorates the day in 1865 that Texans were told by Union troops that the Civil War had ended and that all slaves were now freed. Though the Emancipation Proclamation became official on January 1, 1863, there was little impact on the lives of Texans until 1865.
Today, Juneteenth celebrates African American freedom while encouraging self-development and respect for all cultures.
