Equity and Inclusion


Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when the news reached enslaved African Americans in Texas that the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed by President Lincoln two years earlier in 1863. This day celebrates the ending of enslavement; African American culture; Black excellence, power, and joy; and the contributions of African Americans.
