Juneteenth is a holiday that celebrates African-American independence and promotes the importance of education and achievement. It’s a day, a week, and in some parts of the country, a month filled with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics, and family get-togethers. It’s a time for celebrating and introspection. It’s a moment for self-evaluation, self-improvement, and future planning. Its rising popularity represents a level of maturity and dignity in America that has been long overdue. People of all races, nationalities, and religions are coming together in cities around the country to properly acknowledge a period in our history that formed and continues to affect our society today. Only through being more aware of other people’s circumstances and experiences will we be able to make major and long-term changes in our society.
What happened on Juneteenth Day?
The first Watch Night services were held on January 1, 1863. Enslaved and free African Americans congregated in churches and private houses around the country on that night, hoping for news of the Emancipation Proclamation’s implementation. All enslaved individuals in the Confederate States were declared legally free at the stroke of midnight, answering prayers. Union soldiers, many of whom were black, marched onto plantations and through southern communities, reading small copies of the Emancipation Proclamation and spreading the gospel of freedom throughout the Confederate States. Slavery was abolished in the United States only after the Thirteenth Amendment was passed.
However, not everyone in Confederate territory would be set free right away. Despite the fact that the Emancipation Proclamation became effective in 1863, it could not be executed in areas still controlled by the Confederacy. As a result, enslaved persons in Texas, the westernmost Confederate state, would not be free until much later. On June 19, 1865, 2,000 Union forces arrived at Galveston Bay, Texas, bringing with them the promise of freedom. By executive edict, the state’s more than 250,000 enslaved black people were set free, according to the army. The newly freed inhabitants of Texas began to refer to this day as “Juneteenth.”
The Historical Legacy of Juneteenth
Our country’s second independence day is Juneteenth. Despite the fact that it has long been commemorated in the African-American community, most Americans are unaware of this historic event.
What is red soda water?
Many folks enjoy a barbecue and a glass of red strawberry soda to commemorate Juneteenth. Slaves celebrated their freedom by drinking red soda, a pleasure they had not been able to enjoy as slaves. As a result, drinking red soda on Juneteenth has become a custom.
