Juneteenth is also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day. The holiday commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas and more generally the emancipation of negro slaves throughout the Confederate South.
The National Juneteenth Observance Foundation (NJOF) of Alabama is more than 20 years old. The organization worked hard to make sure the state recognized the Juneteenth holiday. NowView more
