The books featured below are all about the Juneteenth holiday, which is observed on June 19th. Two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865 to ensure that all enslaved blacks knew that they were free.
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day and Jubilee Day, honors the end to slavery in the United States. There are 10+ Juneteenth themed books to choose from!
