Happy Juneteenth! What began as a largely American-African celebration in Texas, Juneteenth marks the end of slavery in the US. Virginia was one of the earliest states to recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday before Pres. Joe Biden declared it as a federal holiday in 2021. https://t.co/yP1htYHP9l 757_Alliance photo
