Juneteenth – Did You Know?

19 June

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and issued General Order No. 3, officially announcing the end of slavery in Texas, making it one of the last Confederate states to receive the news.

Juneteenth is celebrated through a variety of traditions and activities. These may include public readings of the Emancipation Proclamation, religious services, parades, musical performances, storytelling, family gatherings, picnics, and barbecues. Red foods and drinks, such as red velvet cake or strawberry soda, are often associated with the holiday, symbolizing resilience and perseverance.
