Juneteenth is a uniquely American holiday, the oldest nationally-celebrated festival to honor the end of slavery in the United States. The holiday started as a local celebration in Galveston, Texas in 1865 but has become a nationwide  observance of the day the news of the June 19th African American Emancipation Day spread from one side of the United States to the other.

Today’s modern Juneteenth celebrations and festivals place an emphasis on celebrating the freedom of African Americans, and many celebrations honor excellence in education and other achievement in the African American community. Juneteenth can be celebrated as a single day, a week’s worth of festivities, and in some parts of the country, an entire month dedicated to the memory of slavery and Emancipation.
