Juneteenth is an important day in American history. It commemorates June 19, 1865, the day when the last enslaved people in the United States learned that they had been freed, more than two years years after the Emancipation Proclamation officially set them free. The day holds special significance for their descendants, and for anyone concerned about the evil of slavery, so to help everyone learn more about Juneteenth’s history, and to honor its cultural significance, We've put together a BOOK  BUNDLE for older adults and seniors can read to understand the story of slavery, its lasting effects, and its importance in American history.
