Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19th of every year, marks the day that the last enslaved people in Galveston, Texas learned of their freedom in 1865. June 19th is the Independence Day we celebrate for them. Celebrating and acknowledging Juneteenth is an organizational recognition that the Fourth of July is not the only Independence Day that deserves to be celebrated. Celebrating Juneteenth means recognizing American history and honoring it with the same vigor that we honor other important days.
