JUNETEENTH: Summer Reading List

19th June 2021

Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas with news that the Civil War was over and enslaved people were free. The news was cause for celebration to be sure, although it arrived a full two and a half years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. 

FUP joins communities around the country to recognize and celebrate Juneteenth, which marks the end of slavery in the United States. To help represent this holiday, we are highlighting books from our Race Collection for summer reading.
