National Association of Juneteenth Lineage

Celebrating Culture & Independence


When the United States won its independence, the freedom of the states changed little for the most subjugated and enslaved within the former colonies. In fact, many colonizers who participated in chattel slavery had fought in the American Revolution over fears that the abolition of slavery sweeping through their former homelands would also take root in the "New" World. Upon the revolution’s victory, and immediate fears over abolition put to rest, it was not until nearly a century later that freedom became more accessible to everyone. Celebration of Juneteenth honors  those who demanded for more than a performative acknowledgement of justice and also supports a more inclusive understanding of independence.
