Why It All Happens

The Juneteenth Freedom Celebration Festival commemorates the emancipation of enslaved Black Americans and celebrates African American culture in recognition of black contributions and progress. 

A Brief History

The name, “Juneteenth,” is in reference to June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers reached Galveston, Texas and announced that the Civil War was over and the enslaved were now free. While the Emancipation Proclamation was signed into law in 1863, it effectively had zero legal impact since the Confederacy had seceded from the Union. As a result enslaved Blacks remained in bondage 2 years after President Lincoln sign the proclamation.

On June 17, 2021, President Biden signed into law a long over due Senate Bill making “Juneteenth” a federal holiday.
