Juneteenth is a day of celebration commemorating the anniversary of the abolition of slavery in Texas, June 19, 1865. Black people continued to celebrate Juneteenth as a time to honor Old Texas because it was not until that day that black people were set free from slavery and could go wherever they pleased. Today, black history month celebrates the role African Americans played in America's development from a nation of slavery to one whose leader became an African-American President. Juneteenth commemorates those people who died for their freedom and those who fought for it.
