Juneteenth (also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, or Emancipation Day) is a holiday celebrated annually to commemorate the official end of slavery in the United States, a joyous celebration of freedom! Commitment to learning about the history of Juneteenth is critical in understanding the past to establish a brighter future. As a community, we honor Juneteenth and take this day as an opportunity to honor, embrace, and learn more about Black culture through its art and history.
Let’s continue the work that began on that day many years ago and advocate for a more equitable and inclusive future! Let’s join together to commemorate this national milestone and forever advocate for “liberty and justice for all”!
