Originating in Galveston, Texas in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the Black Emancipation Day has spread across the United States. Juneteenth is a day to celebrate Black freedom. It can be a day, a week, and for some a month marked with celebrations, speakers, and family gatherings. It’s a time to reflect, rejoice and plan for the future. This year is particularly special to us as we also celebrate the historic moments in the fight for fair representation in Louisiana. You have used your voices to demand change. Celebrate liberation and Demand Fair Maps for the People! #WeDrawTheLines
