Juneteenth celebrates the commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, and dates back to 1865. On June 19, 1865, the previously enslaved people in the remote Confederate state of Texas were declared free. On Juneteenth we celebrate, promote and support the knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture.
