Juneteenth, also known as “Jubliee Day” and “Freedom Day”, commemorates and honors the official end of slavery in the United States. It represents June 19, 1865, the day federal troops went to Galveston, TX to inform all remaining slaves of their freedom, a full 2 & 1/2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation was declared.
On June 10, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy signed legislation designating Juneteenth a State and public Holiday, and this past Thursday, June 17, 2021, President Biden signed legislation designating Juneteenth a national Holiday! At Ramapo College, we are proud to recognize Juneteenth and support our Black students, faculty and staff through reflection and celebration. You can commemorate this holiday by learning the history of Juneteenth and other Black history facts, donating to or buying from Black charities, organizations or companies, and celebrating and uplifting the Black people within your communities.
