What is Juneteenth Day?

We often attribute January 1, 1863, the day that Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation finally became official, as the day that slaves were finally freed from their bondage. For several reasons, the technically “free” slaves did not receive word of their freedom and thus, were still working on plantations without receiving compensation for their work.

It wasn’t until June 19, 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, that Major General Gordon Granger told the last slaves at Galveston, Texas the news of their emancipation.

We do not speak much about this day in American history. In the 1900s, classrooms and textbooks associated the end of slavery with the Emancipation Proclamation and neglected the two and a half year gap between then and when the last slave was freed.

To this day, Texas is the only state to officially recognize Juneteenth as an official state holiday, although many other Black communities in several states have celebrations. Hopefully, more states officially recognize the holiday as it’s important not only for Black Americans, but the entire U.S.
