Lunch & Learn: The History of Juneteenth - Virtual Event


Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum

This is a virtual event

On June 19, 1965 in Galveston, Texas, Major General Gordon Granger of the Union Army issued a statement that all slaves in Texas were free. The announcement came almost three years after Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. Though the event was followed by confusion, delay, and continued terror for many enslaved Texans, Juneteenth is now the most popular annual celebration of emancipation from slavery in the United States. Join Dr. George Keaton, Jr., Founder and Executive Director of Remembering Black Dallas and the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum for a discussion of the history of Juneteenth, its particular significance in Texas, and how the holiday has evolved over the last 150 years.
