Juneteenth, also known as “Emancipation Day” or “Freedom Day,”commemorates June 19, 1865 when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas and passed down the proclamation to enslaved African Americans that they were free — more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln. 

 

While this holiday is considered the “longest running African-American holiday,” it was only June 15, 2021 that the U.S. Senate unanimously approved the bill that makes Juneteenth a legal public holiday.
