Here's where to Celebrate Juneteenth all over the World!
Juneteenth is a federal holiday that celebrates the emancipation of enslaved people. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of the announcement by general Granger on June 19, 1865 proclaiming freedom for all slaves in Texas. Since 1865, black Americans have celebrated this day all over the world; here are some of our favorite celebrations of black joy!
