Juneteenth Recognized as National Holiday

On Thursday, June 17th, President Joe Biden signed a bill to recognize Juneteenth as a Federal holiday.

Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in Texas and has been celebrated since 1886. Throughout history, Juneteenth has been known by many names: Jubilee Day, Freedom Day, Liberation Day, Emancipation Day, and today it is a National Holiday. Juneteenth celebrations originate in Galveston, and Texas was the first state to officially recognize the date in 1980.

At McConnell Jones, we recognize Juneteenth as an important commemoration of Black Independence and the progress we continue to strive for. With such deep ties to Texas, Juneteenth has become a cultural pillar in our local communities. We encourage everyone to use this Juneteenth to learn about African-American Heritage and the history of this holiday.
