What is Juneteenth?
Juneteenth, short for "June Nineteenth," is the celebration of the day in 1865 when enslaved Americans in Galveston, Texas finally received word that they were free and officially recognized as citizens. Black Americans began commemorating Juneteenth with celebrations across the country. In 2021, the US government declared Juneteenth an official holiday.
