Houston Celebrates

In Houston, Texas, they will celebrate the eighth annual “Juneteenth Stringfellow Orchards Family Day.” Participants will create a mural that portrays life in America in the first 50 years after slavery ended. Texas declared Juneteenth a state holiday on January 1, 1980. (Photo: Matthew J.
