Juneteenth

June 19

On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers enforced the Emancipation Proclamation and freed all remaining slaves in Texas. This day is an opportunity for people to celebrate freedom and equal rights.  Juneteenth is a partial or full state holiday, or an official observance in at least 42 US states and the District of Columbia.   Typically, a range of public, community and private events are held to celebrate Juneteenth, often on a weekend close to June 19.
