Juneteenth is a federal holiday day celebrating Freedom for all United States citizens. It commemorates the day in our history, June 19, 1865, when General Gordon Granger announced freedom to the formerly enslaved Black people remaining in Texas, two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. It is a day we celebrate our shared history, Freedom, and continued commitment to equity and inclusion for all.
WHY JUNETEENTH IN SPRINGBORO?
Springboro is a significant landmark in the history of the Underground Railroad and abolitionist movement. Our founding Quaker community played a major role as a safe harbor for Freedom Seekers paving the way for Freedom for Black Americans.
