Just in Case you Missed it :
By Shantay Robinson
Juneteenth commemorates the day slaves in Texas became aware that slavery had been abolished. Although slavery had been abolished by Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, because there weren’t many Union soldiers in Texas to enforce the January 1, 1963 mandate, African Americans were still in bondage until they were informed on June 19, 1865.
Celebrating Juneteenth means memorializing the freedom African Americans have today. Keeping in mind that this is a country that was built on the bondage of African people is important for us to maintain a perspective of the tenants this country was founded on. While African Americans have the freedom to hold office, create legislation, and protest unfair treatment, understanding there was a time when these things were inconceivable, is necessary to gain greater rights with more vigilance.
