Juneteenth - Independence Day


Despite the Emancipation Proclamation being declared January 1, 1863, it wasn't until June 19, 1865 that it was enforced in all territories and states.  This is the story of Juneteenth.  Today we're mindful of how far we've come, and the journey that remains. Happy Juneteenth Freedom Day!
