History

Juneteenth is an annual festival that commemorates the emancipation of slavery of African Americans in the southern states of the United States in 1865. This holds prominence in Texas since this was the last state to free the enslaved two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, signed by Abraham Lincoln.
