Juneteenth

On June 19, 1865, Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas with the news that the more than 250,000 enslaved Black people in the state were free. This day came to be known as Juneteenth, now officially a federal holiday.

Juneteenth is a time to celebrate, gather as a family, reflect on the past and look to the future.
