Juneteenth, is every year on June 19, commemorates the end of chattel slavery in the United States. In Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger announced that all slaves were free, 2 1/2 years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
At the time, there were approximately 250,000 slaves in the state. More than 150 years later, Juneteenth celebrations across the U.S. include parades, picnics and plenty of food. Juneteenth is not recognized as a national holiday. Why not? I know, we still have a long way to go.
