Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is the oldest national celebration of the eradication of slavery in the USA. On June 19, 1865 an announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-Americans in the Confederate South was made.
Today Juneteenth not only commemorates African-American freedom, but it also emphasizes education and freedom. It is a day, a week and in some areas a month of celebration of events and families gathering together to reflect and rejoice. It is also a time for assessment, self-improve and for planning the future.
So let us take this time to evaluate how far we have come in America, how much more needs to be done and how we can improve our communities, schools and businesses.
