Juneteenth commemorates the date—June 19, 1865, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after the end of the Civil War—when hundreds of thousands of enslaved men and women in Texas finally learned they had been freed.

Juneteenth is an important milestone in American culture. It represents resistance, resilience, and Black Joy, which we'll talk more about soon. First, let's get to the real story behind Juneteenth because it's a story that's not told nearly enough.

        The 225th General Assembly, whichbegan June 17, intends to have its "Juneteenth Worship" on Sunday.

        You can learn about Juneteenth here: (Dr. Karlos K. Hill, historian, University of Oklahoma, explains "Juneteenth")

       It's a new federal holiday.
