What is Juneteenth?
Juneteenth is a holiday celebrating the end of slavery in the United States. It commemorates June 19, 1865. It is when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced that all enslaved people had been freed. This announcement came more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.
The delay in announcing emancipation to enslaved people in Texas was due to several factors, including distance from Washington D.
C., lack of military presence in some areas and resistance from enslavers who refused to release their workers without compensation.
Despite these challenges, Juneteenth became an important day for African Americans as they celebrated their newfound freedom with parades, cookouts, and other festivities. Over time, it grew into a national observance that honors not only those who suffered under slavery but also those who fought for equal rights throughout history.
Today, Juneteenth serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for racial equality and justice while celebrating African American culture and heritage.
