The 19th of June marks the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States, when Union troops assumed control of Galveston, Texas. Juneteenth is a day to celebrate and commemorate the end of the institute of slavery. Not only is this a day for remembrance and reflection, but it is also a day for education, awareness and discourse about the topic, as well as a day to celebrate African-American culture and history. While Juneteenth is only celebrated once a year, it is a great way to start the conversation and honor African-American history every day.
