Happy Juneteenth! Knowledge is Power!



Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. Celebrated on June 19, the word is a portmanteau of "June" and "nineteenth". Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in most states.
Let's celebrate by educating ourselves and by being informed an productive citizens in our homes and in our communities!
Happy Juneteenth! Knowledge is Power!
