Juneteenth

Today’s Melanin Magic is in honor of Juneteenth. Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United Sates. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

Today is our day of freedom. It’s our Independence Day.
