Juneteeth is an annually celebrated holiday commemmorating the freedom of former slaves in the United States. The name comes from June 19th, the day freedom was announced to all. Even though the Emancipation Proclamation of 1865 was put to action, word did not spread until a few months later.

Below are resources to learn more, commemmorate, and celebrate Juneteenth and civil rights.
