Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day, holds profound significance in American history and represents a pivotal moment in the ongoing struggle for racial equality and justice. On June 19, 1865, enslaved African Americans in Texas finally received news of their emancipation, marking the belated realization of freedom for all enslaved people in the United States. Juneteenth serves as a reminder of the resilience, perseverance, and collective strength of the African American community, while also highlighting the continued work required to dismantle systemic racism and create a more inclusive and equitable society. It is a day to honor the ancestors who fought for freedom, reflect upon the challenges that still persist, and commit to fostering unity, understanding, and justice for all.
In honor of Juneteenth we will be closed on June 19th. We will resume our normal hours on Tuesday, June 20th.
