C’est Moi Passes the Mic: Celebrating & Honoring Juneteenth

On June 19, we commemorate the day that ALL slaves were finally free in the U.S.

On September 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the emancipation proclamation outlawing slavery, but it took another two and a half years for all slaves to be freed. June 19, 1865, is the day that finally happened—when Union Army general Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas and proclaimed freedom from slavery in Texas.

To celebrate this important date in U.S. history and also mark the progress we are still making as a nation when it comes to equality, C’est Moi partnered with some incredible individuals, Madame Athena Chang and Timothy Micheal Harris, to help educate our community on Juneteenth and share what this day means to them.
