克里斯蒂娜·罗亚尔的大头照6月19日, 1865, the Emancipation Proclamation was put into effect when enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, 德州, were told that the Civil War had ended, 他们是自由的. 

More than one hundred and fifty years later, June 19 – "六月节" – is observed across the country as a joyful holiday that celebrates freedom. 

的 Emancipation Proclamation did not erase the centuries of violence and subjugation upon which our country was built. Nor did it bridle the cultivation and insidious growth of systemic racism at every level of our nation's policies, which to this day prevent the United States from being a place of true freedom for all. T在这里 is, doubtless, work still to be done. 

今天, 六月节 is reserved as a day to celebrate and honor Black freedom, 黑色的卓越, 和黑乐. 全国各地, parades will be held on city streets, picnics will take place in family backyards, and descendants of those who were told they were free on June 19, 1865 will make the pilgrimage to Galveston to honor their ancestors. 

If you're looking for a way to celebrate 六月节 this weekend, please explore joining us in the following:

It is crucial that while doing the ongoing work of naming and dismantling systemic racism, we allow ourselves pauses to rest, 练习自我照顾, 为了庆祝. For those who may want to learn more about 六月节, find 下面的参考资料.
