Juneteenth is now a State and Federal holiday. It began as a commemorative event when enslaved Blacks in Texas learned that they were freed—two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. This recognition memorializes the end of slavery in the country and marks a new beginning of a long-deferred process of making slavery a critical part of our national conversation. The New Jersey Historical Society has always promoted the study of African American history and experience. We are pleased that this has become a nationwide discussion.
