June 19, 1865 it is the day that enslaved African Americans learned of their freedom in West Texas, and it is the oldest African American celebration. One way to observe Juneteenth is to read about the Emancipation Proclamation that helped in the freedom of slaves in the United States.

There are a number of Juneteenth materials that can be found in the UAA Consortium Library QuickSearch.
