Today we commemorate Juneteenth— the anniversary of the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas — nearly 2.5 years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Following the news of emancipation, African-Americans were barred from using public parks. Sparked by the desire to have a place to commemorate the anniversary of their emancipation, community members in Houston (all former slaves) united to raise $800 to purchase 10 acres of parkland to host Juneteenth Celebrations in 1872. This park was dubbed “Emancipation Park” — the only public park in the Houston area that was open to African Americans until the 1950s. It still exists today as the oldest public park in Texas.
