Freedom on Juneteenth - What have we forgotten... Written by Daviyd Peterson
Every year for 140 years we have continued to celebrate that fateful Juneteenth day in Galveston, Texas when 2 year old news arrived that emancipation proclamation had been signed freeing all slaves. Black slavery was abolished on this Juneteenth day in Texas and an emancipation proclamation summary was delivered throughout Texas either officially or unofficially. But have we remembered to celebrate everything?
This Juneteenth celebration a final blow to American slavery has moved beyond borders of Galveston, beyond borders of great State of Texas, beyond borders of U.S. to encircle several countries and faiths and peoples. We need to ask ourselves - have we remembered to celebrate everything?
Juneteenth in Galveston Texas is sometimes celebrated for a day or a week and even a whole month. Being freed from slavery can have that kind of memorable effect to where you want generation after generation to almost feel embrace of emancipation. To remember Juneteenth not only as a time to barbeque and drink - but as a historic marker of freedom for a downtrodden people. Juneteenth celebrations and Texas emancipation should be synonymous in our minds - to be taught to our children as history so that it will never be repeated. Remember to celebrate everything.
