Recently, you may have been hearing about Juneteenth — another word for June 19 — which is the oldest known celebration of the end of slavery in the United States. As we learn in this All About the Holidays video (and much more!), Juneteenth is now celebrated in communities across the country since its origins in Texas.
You can find
