What is Juneteenth?
Juneteenth (also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day) is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers landed in Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
