So, you may ask, why are we doing this? Well, it’s tradition!
We are celebrating Juneteenth which marks the day on June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers landed at Galveston and reported that the Civil War was over, and slavery had ended.
The Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves had been in effect since January 1, 1863, but word did not reach Texas for over two years.
Juneteenth was declared an official state holiday in Texas in 1980.
GCCMA has held this celebration for 67 years and we want you to join us! We look forward to seeing you there!
