At a Glance

A long-time state holiday in Texas, Juneteenth is a day to commemorate the declaration of freedom for enslaved people after the Civil War and it is becoming more recognized around the world as an ethnic day of celebration. We all know about the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation, but how did this holiday come to be and where does it belong in the world outside of Texas where it began? Join our expert, Dr. Howard Robinson, as he provides insight to this significant day and examine some of the debates surrounding how the holiday is acknowledged by individuals, families, employers, cities, states and the federal government.
