Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. July 4th is celebrated as Independence Day and it symbolizes the birth of an independent nation, therefore June 19th should be celebrated as it was a major milestone for black people and the birth of a new age of freedom and independence for black people. Juneteenth becoming a national holiday will remind us of the power we have as people and the equality we must ensure for everyone.
