As a Black Owned Business, It is vital for us as a company to continue to spread awareness of Black Culture and the importance of education. Please not only observe, but learn, about Juneteenth with us each year, as we grow to understand what the Essence of Freedom truly meant for the Black Americans before us on June 19th, 1865.
Happy Freedom Day,

History of Juneteenth
Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all Black enslaved people be freed. The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth honors the end to slavery in the United States and is considered the longest-running Black American holiday. On June 17, 2021, Juneteenth officially became a federal holiday. (HISTORY.com)
