Juneteenth is an annual holiday celebrated on June 19th in the United States. It commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and recognizes the day when news of their freedom reached Galveston, Texas in 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln.
The day's celebrations embrace a rich tapestry of activities, including parades, music festivals, art exhibitions, cultural performances, and educational events. It is a time for communities to come together, reflect on the hardships endured by enslaved individuals, and celebrate the achievements and contributions of African Americans to society.
