Directed by Lincoln, federal troops were sent to spread the word that enslaved black people were Americans under the law. 156 years ago on June 19, 1865 (2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation) they finally reached Texas and all Americans became free from slavery. Black Americans celebrated the date, also known as Emancipation Day, and the jubilee has continued to this day, which is now a recognized federal holiday.
Today the holiday is about the celebration of Black culture, history and life, bringing people together to honor all those who came before us and fought for the rights and privileges we hold today.
