Why does the US celebrate July 4th as our Independance Day yet does not acknowledge Juneteenth?

    I have a problem celebrating this day when it took 89 years for my ancestors to gain their freedom. This is not my Independance Day

    Those same slaves fought for the freedom of this country as well and remained slaves which means they did not gain their freedom. So once they did this country should have acknowledge that as well

    Black History Month? Black American History can't be bottled into one month. That's why you didn't know about Junteenth. It's AMERICAN HISTORY.
