Juneteenth is the oldest known commemoration related to the abolition of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth celebrates June 19, 1865, when enslaved people of African descent located in Texas, finally learned of their freedom from the slavery system in the United States. We’ll recognize the many songs that came out of slavery to help celebrate Black Music Month and the influences made to America.
