#Juneteenth marks the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans in the United States. Originating in Galveston, Texas, in 1865, when Union General Gordon Granger announced the end of slavery, this day symbolizes freedom and justice.

#Juneteenth has grown from local festivities to a national recognition of African American history and resilience. It serves as an important reminder of the ongoing journey toward equality and the importance of remembering and honoring the past.
We are proud to celebrate #Juneteenth in Bessemer City!
