On Saturday, June 19, SAMF celebrates Juneteenth at Cathedral Basilica at 7:30 PM.

Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day in 1865 when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people were now free. The troops’ arrival came two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Lincoln. The end of slavery in the United States is celebrated on Juneteenth and is considered the longest-running African American holiday.

On June 17, 2021, President Biden signed the law, and Juneteeth is now a Federal Holiday.
