Juneteenth is a federal holiday in which we celebrate the liberation of the last African American slaves in Texas by American soldiers in June of 1865. It signifies the time when America fulfilled its commitment to liberty for all of its citizens. Although our backgrounds may differ as Americans, our histories are intertwined. On this holiday, we celebrate the opportunity to stand united in freedom.
