Slavery in Waco


“Jubilee” - The end of slavery in America! On June 19, 1865 word of the Emancipation Proclamation finally reached enslaved African Americans in Texas, two years after it was signed in 1863 and slaves in other states had been freed by law. Festivals honoring the emancipation of enslaved African Americans were celebrated by blacks and whites alike for decades, dying out by the 1920s. One hundred forty-seven years later, the Texas festival, “Juneteenth“, remains the most prominent of the freedom festivals that remain nationwide, owing to the number of African Americans with Texas roots throughout the U.S. This holiday is especially poignant given the conditions of enforced illiteracy of those enslaved Texans, whose owners kept secret from them the truth of their own freedom. In honor of those ancestors, we celebrate not only our ethnic heritage, but our birthright as individuals who are free to pursue our educational goals.
