What is Juneteenth?

One hundred fifty years ago on June 19, 1865 the enslaved in Galveston, TX first learned of their freedom two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been enacted. Thus began the Juneteenth celebration, which has grown to acknowledge the importance of education, achievement, community and freedom.
