On June 19, 1865, enslaved African Americans in Texas were told they were free

A century and a half later, people across the U.S. continue to celebrate the day

 Which is now a federal holiday.

The staff of Streetsblog is off today to stamp the Juneteenth public occasion

The festival of the finish of servitude in the U.S. in 1865. 

Albeit the occasion has for quite some time been commended

 It was only after last year that President Biden at last endorsed into regulation

 A bill making Juneteenth National Independence Day.

Streetsblog will be back distributing in full tomorrow, Tuesday, June 21.

From the staff at Streetsblog we wish everybody a protected and vital occasion
