KU to Honor Juneteenth June 19

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration of the ending of slavery. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19 that Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that all slaves were now free. This was two-and-a-half years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, which had become official Jan. 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee at Appomattox in April 1865, and the arrival of General Granger's regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.
PASSHE and KU have proudly honored Juneteenth for the past four years by closing campuses to allow staff and faculty to celebrate the holiday. Juneteenth represents a seminal event in American history. Juneteenth was long ignored by much of the nation, but is now a national holiday. It was declared so in 2021, when the U.S. Senate passed the Juneteenth National Independence Act and President Biden signed the bill into law. There are many local Juneteenth events.
