HAPPY JUNETEENTH!!

 

For the first time since 1983, a new federal holiday has been created. Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey, Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn, and Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee are among the members of Congress who led the effort to make Juneteenth the 12th federal holiday. After passing the House and Senate, President Joe Biden signed into law yesterday (JUN 17) a bill designating Juneteenth as the 12th federal holiday, saying “[t]his is a day of profound weight and profound power, a day in which we remember the moral stain, the terrible toll that slavery took on the country and continues to take.”

#Juneteenth ( #EmancipationDay#IndependenceDay#FreedomeDay ) long celebrated by African Americans in the U.S., commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the confederate south, and more broadly the emancipation of all African-American slaves.

 

Juneteenth Miami held its 1st Annual Freedom Fry & Music Festival in 2014 featuring authentic Black-American food from Carolina (Gullah Geechie), Tennessee (BBQ), New Orleans (Seafood), Georgia (Soul Food), our world famous FREEDOM PUNCH, music, and art with over 1,000 diverse guest in attendance, making it Miami’s largest Juneteenth celebration. In 2021, the celebrations in Miami are expected to be bigger and better! Go to https://www.miamiandbeaches.com/…/juneteenth-events-in… for more info.
