Join us in commemorating this event Saturday June 20, 2015 @ 12PM- 6PM at Legacy Emanuel Field – N Williams Ave & N Graham across from The Urban League!

On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers reached Galveston, Texas, with news that slavery had been abolished, over two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation and two months following General Lee’s surrender. Juneteenth – celebrated in communities across the country – will this year mark the 150th anniversary of this final end to slavery in the United States.
