Delighted to commemorate #Juneteenth @USEmbassyKenya with colleagues & friends from the American community. Juneteenth/June 19, which commemorates the date that enslaved people in Texas were finally informed of their freedom, is now a U.S. federal holiday: share.america.gov/juneteenth-rem…
Juneteenth marks an important date in U.S. history that reminds us of our obligation to pursue racial justice and equity. This day has come not only to mark the effective end of chattel slavery, but the reality that freedom and justice have been delayed for far too many.
Retweeted by Chargé d’Affaires Eric Kneedler
Today, I had the honor of signing a bill to officially make Juneteenth a federal holiday. With this important step, all Americans can feel the power of the day, learn from our history, celebrate our progress, and grapple with the distance we still have to travel.
