Juneteenth is a newly recognized holiday in the United States, but not really a newly celebrated one.
Juneteenth has been around since 1865 when General Gordon Granger proclaimed the freedom of enslaved people in Texas.
It’s celebrated generally as an emancipation celebration and a celebration of black history.
A town near me is having a Juneteenth celebration today and I’m going with a friend. It should be fun.
I’m all about celebrating history and it’s something to get me out of the house.
I changed my sheets already and the pillow cases are in the washer.
Now I just have to do the shower thing.
