JuneteenthImage of Juneteenth celebrants wearing an American flag shirt and a black tshirt readying JUNETEENTH BLACK INDEPENDENCE... has been celebrated for a long time and through "rich traditions" by the Black community.  According to Jameelah Nasheed of Teen Vogue, "Juneteenth is a special celebration on June 19th that commemorates the end of the United States’ historic practice of slavery. In this sense, Juneteenth is a day for honoring the freedom of all people living in the United States."
