  • we explain the history of Juneteenth.


  • On January 1st 18 63 President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation abolishing slavery, but it would take more than 2.5 years for freedom to reach every state.


  • Some say this was because news was slow to spread.


  • Others say that the information was withheld from slaves, and others say that in some states there weren't enough union soldiers to enforce the order.


  • Finally, on June 19th, 18 65 Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced that the civil war had ended and the more than 250,000 remaining enslaved people were now free, resulting in massive celebrations the following year.

    最後,18 65年6月19日,戈登-格蘭傑少將抵達德克薩斯州的加爾維斯頓,宣佈內戰已經結束,剩下的25萬多被奴役的人獲得了自由,結果第二年就舉行了大規模的慶祝活動。

  • On June 19th, the first official Juneteenth celebrations took place in Texas.

    6月19日,德克薩斯州舉行了第一次正式的 "六月十九日 "慶祝活動。

  • The newly freed African Americans celebrated by dressing up nicely, something they were not allowed to do with slaves and singing, spirituals, dancing and reading.


  • The Emancipation Proclamation allowed.


  • Even though African Americans did not receive the same liberties as others, they and their descendants continued the celebration every year, and as they migrated from Texas to other parts of the country, the Juneteenth tradition spread.


  • Within a few years, it became an annual tradition in many states.


  • Finally, in 1980 Texas declared Juneteenth a state holiday, with 46 more states soon to follow their lead.


  • Today, Juneteenth is celebrated by many with family gatherings, festivals and even parades.


  • It's a day when all Americans can celebrate the beginning of freedom for African Americans, celebrate their culture and achievements and speak out about the progress left to be made.
