What is Juneteenth and why is it celebrated?
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, with news that the Civil War had ended and that all enslaved individuals were now free. This day is a time to reflect on the struggles and triumphs of African Americans throughout history.
