The Official host of the
150th Juneteenth Anniversary Campaign

The celebration leading up to the
150th Anniversary BEGINS NOW!!!

Lets talk about the 150th Anniversary Celebration!

 

 

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond.

Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement and for planning the future. Its growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America long over due. In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today. Sensitized to the conditions and experiences of others, only then can we make significant and lasting improvements in our society.

The celebrations that followed the reading of the proclamation by General Gordon Granger began a tradition that has lasted for one hundred and forty four years, and today is hosted in cities across America and beyond. The JUNETEENTH.com website is dedicated to this celebration and to those who tirelessly contribute to its continued existence and growth.

I cannot say thank you enough. This website has done what word of mouth could never hope to accomplish. It has reached all walks of life. It gives hope, rekindles memories, makes others aware, it is a tool that can be used to complete a job that is still in finishing stages. We should never forget those who gave so much and received so little to make this day possible.

Your website has awakened in me wonderful memories of my families celebration of Juneteenth. We celebrated with music, food, sharing of our blessings, and ended by the entire congregation dancing the Grand March on the lawn of the church.

This is a great site. I hope all Americans will embrace the spirit of Juneteenth as one of freedom and culture, and take time to reflect on the great mosaic of America. When we see ourselves as one people, with our differences adding flavor to our similarities, America becomes a truly great nation and people in the eyes of history.
