Celebrate Juneteenth text NoHo Senior Arts Colony 2022

Freedom is something to be celebrated. And Juneteenth is a National Holiday to celebrate the emancipation proclamation freeing all slaves in the United States in 1863. But the message did not reach some southern states like Texas until June 19th, 1865. It was then that June 19th became Juneteenth. It is considered an additional independence day. It is honored across the country and around the world with joy, celebration, and appreciation. Learn more about Juneteenth now. On behalf of everyone at NoHo Senior Arts Colony, have a wonderful and safe Juneteenth!
