Happy Juneteenth ❤️💛💚🖤💛

Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when federal troops publicly read the Emancipation Proclamation in Galveston, Texas. The troops had arrived in Texas several days earlier to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people were freed. The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

#Juneteenth honors the end to slavery in the U.S. and is considered the longest-running African American holiday. Happy Juneteenth #GramFam ❤️💚💛🖤 #gunaa #gramblingalumni
