Outside Africa Social Issues & Politics In Fashion It’s that time of the year for African Americans or black Americans to connect with themselves and their ever continuous story, hopefully, this year they will continue that connection with Africa as they did much so last year with the year of return. To elaborate more, we are referring to Juneteenth. In case you don’t know, it a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. Originating in Texas, it is now celebrated annually on the 19th of June throughout the United States, with varying official recognition. Specifically, it commemorates Union army general Gordon Granger announcing federal orders in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, proclaiming that all African Americans in Texas were free from being enslaved. US President Donald Trump who was scheduled to rally in Tulsa today decided to postpone his dates to act in line with the Juneteenth celebrations. The president to date is one of the few to drastically change the unemployment rate in the USA for black Americans for the better, and the first to bring both prison and law enforcement reform to contribute to the end of the horrific police acts in the black American communities.
