On June 19th, 1865, the news finally reached Galveston, Texas that the Civil War had ended and that enslaved Africans and African descendants were free. The following year, the day became known as "Juneteenth" and there were celebrations and political rallies across Texas.
Last year Austin City Council established Juneteenth as an annual City holiday on the 19th day of June of each year, beginning 2021, to memorialize the end of chattel slavery in the United States and to celebrate the Africans and African descendants who survived an inhumane economic system and thrived as American citizens.
