Description
What is Juneteenth? Juneteenth marks the day enslaved people in Texas finally learned they were free ... a secret that was kept for 900 days! Today this national holiday is celebrated on June 19 to mark when enslaved Black people finally gained legal freedom. Join author Alliah L. Agostini as she and her grandparents help readers explore the events leading up to the first Juneteenth, and the circumstances that helped this once exclusively-Texan holiday become an American celebration.
