2022 Juneteenth

What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. June 19, 1865 was the day enslaved African-Americans in the state of Texas were informed by Major General Gordan Granger in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. Since 1865, Juneteenth has largely been celebrated in the African-American community. In 2020, New York State made Juneteenth (June 19) an official state holiday, starting in 2021.
