TRI-STATE EXPO'S 2022
JUNE 3, 2022 - JUNE 5, 2022
A brief yet important explanation.
Two years after Abraham Lincoln declared the end of slavery with the Emancipation Proclamation (January 1, 1863) African Americans in Galveston, Texas were still in slavery. It was not until June 19, 1865, that African Americans in Texas finally learned that slavery had been abolished ...they began to celebrate with prayer, song, dance, and feasting.
Today, this moment in history is celebrated and used as a symbolic representation of what took place across the United States of America as slaves continued to learn of the freedom . Juneteenth is an opportunity for all Americans to celebrate liberation of oppressed cultures and the awakening of oppressed minds.
