Today is June 19th which is Juneteenth Day in Texas.
What's that? I get asked this every year by people when I mention Juneteenth.
Juneteenth is one of those holidays you learn a lot about when you take 7th grade Texas History in Junior High.
June 19, 1865 is when the slaves in Texas heard the news that they were free. Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation back in 1963, but it took over 2 1/2 years for the news to get to Texas, and that day is forever called Juneteenth.
Juneteenth officially because a holiday in 1980. There are parties going on all over the place, it's not too late to catch one!
