Emancipation ≠ Freedom: Juneteenth Celebrate Freedom

Juneteenth is a celebration of the emancipation of enslaved Africans in America. On June 19, 1865, two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, news reached Texas and parts of the southwest that freedom had come. One hundred fifty-six
years later, freedom and equality are still being sought. Juneteenth is a day of celebration and recognition, but also a reminder that there is much work to be done.
