A federally recognized holiday since 2021, Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on June 19th every year to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. 

The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, enslaved people were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
