ABOUT JUNETEENTH /

A CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM

On June 19, 1865, the Union General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas to inform inhabitants of the Civil War's end two months earlier. Two and a half years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Granger's first order of business was to read to the people of Texas, General Order Number 3, which stated significantly, " The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer."

 

June 19th - which was quickly shortened to "Juneteenth" among celebrants - has become the African American addendum to our national Independence Day. The mission of Juneteenth is to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of Black History and Culture.
