Patch Packets | Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana


Juneteenth (June 19), also known as Freedom Day, is a monumental moment for African Americans in the United States. Even though President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, officially ending slavery in 1863, in-practice slavery remained in some parts of the country. When word that the Civil War was over and slavery was abolished finally made it to Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, celebrations among the newly free, Black community followed. This was the beginning of the annual tradition, Juneteenth. Celebrations of Juneteenth include faith and community-based events with prayer service, parades, food, athletic competitions, oral readings, reflections, dancing, and more!

Learn and understand the importance of Juneteenth by completing one or more activities.
