Dr. Williams join the United Black Men of Queens to talk about JuneTeenth
Juneteenth is an annual holiday observing the end of slavery in the U.S. It marks the day (June 19, 1865) when news of emancipation reached people in the deepest parts of the former Confederacy in Galveston, Texas. In 2021, it became the first new federal holiday created by Congress in nearly four decades.
