Juneteenth Celebrated Wednesday, June 19th

Juneteenth is a national holiday established in 2021 that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. It recalls how all the states except Louisiana and Texas heard the news that President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. Slavery continued in those two states for more than two years after the proclamation was signed because that word had yet to travel there. Texas and Louisiana finally got the good news on
June 19, 1865, when U.S. Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to take control of the state and ensure all African Americans were freed.   Former slaves broke out in spontaneous celebration. These were dangerous times. Even in the face of resistance and threat, the formerly enslaved persons found ways to give voice to the wide range of thoughts and emotions at the announcement of the end of legalized slavery in the United States of America. We honor and celebrate Juneteenth as United Methodists and as citizens of the USA.
