Resources for Teaching Juneteenth

When we know better, we do better.

Celebrating Juneteenth, the day people who were enslaved were finally informed they were free, is now a National Holiday.

Imagine.

The Civil War is over. The Emancipation Proclamation declared slavery abolished, yet for over 2 years, people enslaved in Texas were not told. That is, until June 19th, 1865. 

Juneteenth. 

We shout for joy that we live to record this righteous decree.

— Frederick Douglass, “Emancipation Proclaimed”

As the well-known saying goes, those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. 

To assist educators in teaching about this important day in our Nation’s history, we created a padlet with resources for PreK/Elementary/Middle/High School (and teachers!) to educate students about ways to celebrate this day of freedom. 

June 19th.
