Join Juneteenth celebrations
One of many famous quotes from Spanish philosopher George Santayana is “Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it.”
And that’s what makes this week’s Juneteenth celebration in Grambling so important.
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.
From its Galveston, Texas, origin in 1865, the observance of June 19 as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond.
