Juneteenth

June 19, 2020

Teaching Tolerance

I didn’t learn about Juneteenth until I was an adult. I wonder why it was never part of my formal K-12 education. Teaching Tolerance website has included a blog post today that was written by Monica J. Bell and actually first published June 18, 2015. It provides history and clear information which I encourage you to read as a teacher, parent, adult seeking clarity so you can be better informed living in America or beyond.

So, what is Juneteenth? The name combines the words June and nineteenth, the day in 1865 when enslaved Texans in Galveston were informed that slavery was over. Learn more in today’s post called Happy Juneteenth! from Teaching Tolerance.
