Juneteenth (June 19) has been celebrated this past week all over the United States. This celebration marks the official end of slavery in Texas, when General Gordon Granger stepped off a boat in Galveston, Texas, in 1865, and publicly read President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. What began in Galveston on that day has grown into a nationwide celebration, this being the 145th year. These folks were part of the annual community gathering in Neylandville, Texas. Neylandville, population 56, might be the very last all-black community in Texas.
