Happy Juneteenth

Happy Juneteenth to my Texas African-American brothers and sisters! On this day 155 years ago (June 19, 1865) the news of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and of Congress’s 13th Amendment was delivered with finality and authority on the shores of Galveston, TX, effectively ending slavery in the Lone Star State.
