The History of Juneteenth
Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, starting the long process of ending slavery in the United States. But it wasn’t until two and a half years later that all enslaved people actually went free.
On June 19, 1865, Texas became the last state to recognize the end of slavery—a milestone celebrated today as Juneteenth, or Freedom Day. ShearShare honors the history that led to that day, as well as the hard-earned victories that have followed.
