About Juneteenth

Juneteenth, also known as “Jubilee 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 two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was declared. Juneteenth also represents the symbol of liberation that was delayed due to opposition and resistance.

Ramapo College of New Jersey is proud to join with the State and our nation in acknowledging and celebrating Juneteenth. On this day, we celebrate, honor and pay tribute to the rich heritage, history and accomplishments of Black Americans and people of African descent, in our Ramapo community and nationwide, many of whom risked their lives for equality, justice and liberation for all people. In recognizing and celebrating Juneteenth, it is up to us as a community to continue to strive towards cultivating and creating a more diverse and culturally enriched campus community.
