12 Quotes About Freedom to Celebrate Juneteenth


Though Juneteenth has been celebrated nationwide for more than 150 years,

many non-Black Americans were largely unfamiliar with its origins until recently. The holiday, otherwise known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day, is an annual commemoration of June 19, 1865, the day that General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform its citizens that all enslaved people were officially free.
 General Granger read aloud General Order number 3, which stated, in part: “The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired laborer."
 The message arrived nearly two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863; Texas was the most remote of the slave states, and therefore the last to receive word. The name for the holiday is a portmanteau of the words “June” and “nineteenth,” and every year since that fateful June day in 1865, folks have celebrated with park gatherings, street fairs, parades, and even Miss Juneteenth competitions.
