Commemorating and Celebrating Juneteenth, 2023

June 19, 2023

MANCHESTER (June 19, 2023) – Today we celebrate Juneteenth; the oldest known holiday that commemorates the end of slavery in the US. A day to reflect on our history, the fight for freedom and the work that still needs to be done today. A day to celebrate African American culture and celebrate our diverse communities. 

Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans by marking the anniversary of the announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas more than two years after the issue of the Emancipation Proclamation the end of the Civil War. 

On behalf of iCare Health Network, we wish you a joyous and peaceful Juneteenth.
