Juneteenth Freedom Day

Mayor Ellen Glasser has declared June 19, 2020, Juneteenth Freedom Day in Atlantic Beach.

Juneteenth (short for June nineteenth) commemorates the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to alert enslaved people they were finally free. The declaration was made more than two-and-a-half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and its anniversary marks the official end of enslavement in the U.S.
