History of Juneteenth, On 1st January 1863, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the finish of bondage with the Emancipation Proclamation. The date of the decree itself (first January) wasn’t considered as the general population needed to check the date when slave’s lives were really affected by the new opportunity. The early recognition of this date, which wound up known as Juneteenth, was viewed as balancing out and persuading nearness in the lives of African-Americans in Texas, who notwithstanding their recently obtained opportunity, still confronted numerous vulnerabilities and difficulties.
