What is Juneteenth? Juneteenth or “Freedom Day” is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States on June 19 every year. It started in Galveston, Texas when the African American citizens in that town were formally informed on June 19, 1865, that all enslaved people were free and entitled to an “absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property…”
