Holidays announced in the United States to commemorate the end of slavery for black Americans
June 19 is a national holiday commemorating the abolition of legal slavery for black Americans in the United States.

President Biden has signed into law the Jubilee National Independence Day bill, making it part of a law that would make June 19 a public holiday throughout the United States.

This national holiday commemorates the day on June 19, 1865, when Union Soldiers informed a group of black prisoners in Texas that they were now free.

At the federal level, the US House of Representatives recently passed a holiday bill
