Celebrate Black Voices on WXPN this Juneteenth - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, the last enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, Texas, were told they were free. The date was June 19, 1865, and it is marked every year on Juneteenth. The national holiday is a day for reflection as well as centering and celebrating Black voices in arts and culture.
