June-teenth is a day when people celebrate the official end of slavery in the United States of America, it is a historic holiday. June-teenth is also known as Freedom DayLiberation Day, or Jubilee Day. It is officially celebrated every year on 19th June.

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and read a federal order abolishing the institution of slavery in the state:

The people of Texas are informed that, per a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor.
