By Deputy Chief Chip Nanko
June 19, 2022

"June 19th is Juneteenth, a holiday that marks a pivotal moment in our American history. This day commemorates the day the Emancipation Proclamation was recognized in Texas, specifically Galveston, TX on June 19, 1865 – more than two years after it had been enacted. This holiday represents the moment when the Emancipation Proclamation reached every city and state in America, including those where people were still enslaved. Recognizing this day drums up a range of emotions for people. It is a time to reflect and a time to celebrate."
