Coweta NAACP commemorates Juneteenth

The Coweta County Chapter of the NAACP in partnership with local businesses, hosted a Night of Culture in remembrance of Juneteenth. Juneteenth or June 19, marks the day enslaved African Americans in west Texas learned of their freedom. In 1863, during the American Civil War, Pres. Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared more than three million slaves living in the Confederate states to be free, according to www.Britannica.com. More than two years would pass, however, before the news reached African Americans living in Texas. It was not until Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, that the state’s residents finally learned that slavery had been abolished, according to Brittanica.
