Juneteenth 2024

June 13, 2024


Juneteenth is a time that African American celebrate Our Independence Day.


Juneteenth is held annually on June 19. In 2024, it falls on a Wednesday.


Juneteenth marks our country's second independence day. Although it has long been celebrated in the African American community, this monumental event remains largely unknown to most Americans.


It recognizes the conditions that some Americans unknowingly liberated by law underwent. While the Emancipation Proclamation guaranteed freedom to enslaved people in secessionist states like Texas, it did not apply to Union states like Maryland, which did not secede during the Civil War. The 13th Amendment, ratified in 1865, ultimately freed all enslaved people in the country.


Juneteenth is a day to honor the resilience, strength, and freedom of African Americans, and it continues to be a vital part of our nation's history and culture.
