READ – Biden’s Proclamation on Juneteenth Day of Observance

A PROCLAMATION On June 19, 1865 -- nearly nine decades after our Nation's founding, and more than 2 years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation -- enslaved Americans in Galveston, Texas, finally received word that they were free from bondage. As those who were formerly enslaved were recognized for the first time as citizens, Black Americans came to commemorate Juneteenth with celebrations across the country, building new lives and a new tradition that we honor today. In its celebration of freedom, Juneteenth is a day that should be recognized by all Americans. And that is why I am proud to have consecrated Juneteenth as our newest national holiday.
