Juneteenth: An Important Day in History
On June 19th 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas to read the Emancipation Proclamation letting slaves know they were finally free. A celebration began as jubilation spread throughout the slave quarters. Every year since then, communities across our nation have celebrated Juneteenth.
