Objectives: Students can understand the freedoms that are denied to enslaved people. Students can explain the reason that Juneteenth is celebrated as the day June 19, 1865 that the final region of the U.S. (Texas) received word that all slaves are free, and give some examples of how it is celebrated. Before using this activity, read several books to students about Juneteenth such as: Juneteenth For Maize by Floyd Cooper; Juneteenth Jamboree by Carole Boston Weatherford; All Different Now: Juneteenth, the First Day of Freedom by Angela Johnson; Juneteenth by Julie Murray.
