National Juneteenth Registry

Often cited as the African American Independence 
Day, Juneteenth has been the subject of city, state 
and federal legislation in recent years, establishing it 
as a special day of recognition, and as one of the 
fastest growing events in the country.  The 
celebration of Juneteenth originates from Galveston, 
Texas, whereas on June 19th, 1865, the word of the 
Emancipation Proclamation reached the enslaved.  
Today, Juneteenth is embraced and celebrated by all 
races and ethnicities in honor, and in 
of African American culture and achievement.

JUNETEENTH.com developed and maintains the 
National Juneteenth Registry - the largest database 
of Juneteenth celebrations, organizations and 
supporters in existence.  JUNETEENTH.com was 
launched in 1996 as a Web portal to communicate 
and support the efforts of Juneteenth organizations 
and to raise awareness and self-esteem in the 
African American community.

June 19th, 2007 marks the 142nd year anniversary of 
the celebration of Juneteenth - the oldest nationally 
celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in 
the United States. JUNETEENTH.com reports an 
increase in first-time celebrations.   To participate, 
organizations and 
supporters are encouraged to log on and register 
their event and organization in the National 
Juneteenth Registry.
