Juneteenth –which gets its name from the date June 19th, 1865– commemorates the emancipation of the last slaves in Texas. This date was over two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and a month after Confederate forces surrendered to the United States, ending the Civil War.
Today, Juneteenth is recognized as a holiday in Maryland, Virginia and the District. We take a look at how the holiday is celebrated in our region as well as what Juneteenth means to locals.
