Editor’s note: Since the publication of this article, Juneteenth was declared a federal national holiday in 2021.

Juneteenth activities feature the sights and sounds of Blackness: People enjoying art, music and food that connect them to a shared ancestry and history. They celebrate being their authentic selves. They celebrate freedom in both solemn and festive ceremonies.

This celebration marks a day in 1865 when enslaved Texans learned they’d be free—two months after Robert E.
