The North Carolina African American Heritage Commission is excited to share information and resources as we prepare to celebrate the Juneteenth holiday. 

Also known as "Freedom Day," Juneteenth is a uniquely American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement that slavery would be abolished in Texas. North Carolina joins in the celebration of this National holiday and commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederacy.

We encourage you to use the items below that have been curated to encourage awareness and enthusiasm for Juneteenth.
