Why We Celebrate Juneteenth
This celebration of freedom from slavery is the oldest African-American holiday observance in the United States. However the majority of slaves in the south were not aware of their freedom until june19,1865. For more than 200 years our ancestors were forced to submit to slavery. They prayed, cried, fought and died for the day that they would be free.
