Juneteenth

The dream, the moment, the happiness that one day the end of this slavery will happen and the blacks will be free This world has different types of people. Some are black, some are white, some are a mixture, and others are not. After all, we are all human beings. We should be treated equally.

It’s been many years since African Americans were struggling for their rights in the country. History is rude. The fate of these people always went into slavery. This day is the day of celebrations. On June 19, people will use signs and marks to arrange parades; the parades will be the parades of the cars. These people will have celebrations as music festivals, with lots of cooking.

The joy is never-ending. This day, these neglected people came to know they were free. They have the same rights as others. Even some will cry that they are now free from the dark shackles. Future generations will celebrate this day with their full emotions too.

Why is Juneteenth important in American history?

The street festivals on June 19th are the glory of African Americans, and this day symbolizes that they are now free from slavery. This day is now recognized as a federal holiday. The U.S. government previously didn’t pay attention to making this day a government holiday, which means the government was reluctant. From 2021 on,  Joe Biden has signed a bill that has been passed by Congress, and it was declared that this day will be observed as a government holiday.

For black people, this day is very memorable. They, in the form of festivals, try to eradicate the darkest history of America. They want to recall their memories. Especially the young kids from their community will understand how their ancestors fought to end slavery.

What the future generation of African Americans should know about this day

Back in 1865, on June 19, Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger came to Galveston. He said this in an order, which was general order No. 3. In that order, he said, “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor.”

The ending of the Civil War and the ending of American slavery The former U.S. president Abraham Lincoln played an important role in eradicating this slavery. In 1863, he declared that they were free. But the real scenario is different. In some parts of the United States, the whites didn’t want to recognize them. This happened because the whites were getting their advantages by using the blacks.

Juneteenth is the day of emancipation. The day when the African Americans got free officially. And obviously, for them, this day is the day of independence. The day they were supposed to earn equal rights all over the country

How this day is observed all over the country

Though it’s a government holiday, the day remains full of celebration. Many people even don’t understand what they are actually celebrating. There are many companies across the country that offer a holiday to their employees on this day. It was found previously that some even came on the street to enjoy the day, but they were not even aware of the importance of the day.

Racial discrimination and political disparity are also eradicated in this day. This day reminds the people that though 1776 gave freedom to the country from the British, it couldn’t get full freedom as it had discrimination inside.

June 19, 1865, has finally come as a blessing for the people to eradicate all the curses and make the country free from the darkness of racial segregation. The country will remember this day forever.
