In recognition of the Juneteenth holiday, the Intercultural Diversity Center presents the Juneteenth: Freedom Day exhibition. Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African American culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, Juneteenth has been celebrated annually on June 19th in various parts of the United States since 1865. This exhibition explores its history, key figures, its impact within the United States and the African American community, ways to get involved and more.
