Start the weekend with a special series highlighting history in all its forms. Begin with our Juneteenth series to focus on an exploration of the history of the newest federal holiday and the importance of reflecting on the past to bring to light the present.
Juneteenth, which also goes by Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, Liberation Day, or Jubilee Day, is an annual American holiday on June 19th. The holiday commemorates the official end of slavery in the state of Texas in 1865, over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. While it originated in Texas, Juneteenth is now nationally recognized for its significance and celebrated across the country.Celebrate Juneteenth
