JUNETEENTH, JUNE 19, 1865 | came to mark a new beginning and a true independence day for African American Texans. The first official Texas Juneteenth celebration was organized by the Freedmen’s Bureau and it was held in Austin in 1867. For many years resolutions recognizing the historical significance of Juneteenth Independence Day have been introduced in Congress by a number of senators and the hope is that some day, the Juneteenth is recognized as a national holiday.
