Juneteenth, a shortened way of referencing June 19th, marks the day in 1865 when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas and ensured that all enslaved people be freed. While the Emancipation Proclamation had already been signed for two years, it only really applied to places under Confederate control and not to states already under Union control. While it’s considered to be the longest-running Black American holiday, it didn’t become an official federal holiday until June 17, 2021! To celebrate this day of joy and liberation, why not collect some tokens by taking quizzes that will test your knowledge on African-American culture?!
