What Is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all 250,000 enslaved people were freed. It came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Honoring Juneteenth is more complicated than just recognizing the emancipation of slaves in our country. It is a day that focuses on fighting racism here and abroad that prevents equity, creates disproportionate suffering, and harms Black adults and children across the globe.

It was the emancipation of enslaved people in the US that allowed this country to turn the page from its most heinous past and chart a more prosperous future. Although it is a celebration, it also signifies our obligation to continue to be advocates for truth and freedom in our communities and throughout the world.

For many years, Juneteenth has been under-recognized and under-celebrated. Juneteenth marks the nation’s second Independence Day and should be a recognized national pride, as it is a significant milestone in American history. We will continue to create the platform for the nation to come together to celebrate Juneteenth.

The City celebration will bring appreciation and recognition of African American history by creating an atmosphere of unity through a modern-day celebration of heritage that educates and engages the broader community, and inspires future changemakers. Join us for food, music, dance, games, marketplace vendors and entertainment. This event is open to the entire community of all ages.
