Juneteenth Celebration

Juneteenth Celebration

Juneteenth is a celebration that commemorates the ending of slavery.  It dates back to 1865 in Galveston, Texas. The celebration is also known as Freedom Day, Emancipation Day or Independence Day.  It is celebrated on June 19th.  The name is derived by blending June and nineteen.  Historian, Hari Jones, reminds us that African Americans actively participated in freeing themselves from slavery on that day by enforcing the Emancipation  Proclamation.   According to President Abraham Lincoln, “Without the military  help of the Black freedmen, the war against the South could not have been won.”  That fact gives us a reason to  rejoice and reflect on the determination, fortitude and resiliency of our ancestors.
