What is Juneteenth?
“All across the United States, and beyond, celebrations commemorate this historical event of 1865 in Galveston, Texas. There, on June 19th, when word of the emancipation proclamation finally reached the enslaved, a new and uncertain way of life began. Today, more than 145 years since, African Americans have elevated this celebration, publicly and privately to one of the most important of the year.
Juneteenth celebrates freedom for all, worldwide. Juneteenth promotes unity and builds self-esteem through reflection, education, and through acknowledgement of achievements. This event encourages people of all races, nationalities and ethnicities to join together to support and participate in Juneteenth celebrations - a true testament to humanity. Juneteenth serves symbolically, and in reality, as a reference point from which to measure and appreciate the progress and contributions made by African Americans to this society.”
