Juneteenth Jubilee At SSW

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free- two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

This year, we will commemorate the 158th year by having three days of Juneteenth Jubilee
