Juneteenth, an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States, is now an official holiday in New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy signed a bill on September 10, 2020 that stated that New Jersey will celebrate the day, every year on the third Friday in June.

This program will explore the months leading up to June 19, 1865, during which enslaved populations throughout the state of Texas waited to receive news of their legal status from Union Army officials. This program will also consider the meanings of this waiting time for African American people in the months and years after they received their freedom. Finally, Professor Hunter will examine African American Juneteenth commemoration practices from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries.
