About the Event
Juneteenth “Freedom Day” has been a tradition in the US for over 150 years. The deep roots of this celebration originated in Texas, where enslaved African Americans in the city of Galveston were finally informed of their freedom on June 19, 1865, about two and half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. The celebration has grown throughout the years, finally being recognized as a National Holiday in 2021.
