Juneteenth

This past Friday (June 19, 2015) marked the one hundred fifty years of celebrating Juneteenth.

On June 19, 1865 the proclamation reached Texas and effectively emancipated the slaves.

Tell me how you celebrate Juneteenth in your hamlet, village, town, city or state.

Tell me if  this was your first time celebrating the emancipation of slavery in America.

Tell me, how many people do you know who celebrate Juneteenth that are not African-Americans?
