Happy Juneteenth! You may not know exactly what that day is, so prepare for a mini-history lesson. June 19th is the day the slaves were granted freedom, specifically the slaves in Texas and other southern, Confederate states that were fighting to keep their slave labor. Since 1865, Black Americans have celebrated June 19th by honoring the contributions of African Americans to our country and spending time with loved ones. Involving red velvet cake, barbecue, and good music, Juneteenth is a celebration of Black culture.
