"May we remember how far we have come and also the work that still must be done.”

On this Juneteenth we honor June 19, 1865 when over 250, 000 enslaved people in Texas learned of their freedom two-and-a-half years after the Emancipation Proclamation freed them. We celebrate Black joy, freedom, and the long road of equity and justice.
