On June 19, 1865, slavery was abolished both in law and in practice. “Juneteenth” is an American holiday that commemorates that day. Juneteenth is also known as Freedom Day , Jubilee Day, Cel-Liberation Day or the Black Fourth of July. Declaring this day a federal holiday will show the World and Black people everywhere (descendants of slaves) that America is listening and ready for change.
