Celebrate Juneteenth 2022: Origin & History of Juneteenth

By C2C Team | July 28, 2022

June 2022 marks the second year the United States observes Juneteenth as a federal holiday. However, Juneteenth has been an occasion for public celebration since 1866, immediately following the end of the Civil War. This year, to recognize Juneteenth and its long history of celebrating the liberation of enslaved people in America, C2C and BDPA invited Mike Tucker, a software developer and project manager who also runs the YouTube channel Fight for Democracy, to share his knowledge about this momentous day and everything it represents. In the video below, Tucker traces the many legal and political battles that eventually led to the nationwide liberation Juneteenth was established to commemorate, as well as the long journey to the date's official designation as a legal public holiday. Please watch and share your thoughts to help us in our mission of cultivating a community that prizes the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion above all.
