Juneteenth commemorates the day in 1865 when the last remaining slaves in Texas were finally freed. Here in Broward, we understand the significance of this day and with the help of my colleagues, two resolutions were passed providing observance and education for Juneteenth in Broward County, which accounted for a plethora of Juneteenth celebrations. One of the resolutions, which I sponsored, urges the Broward County School Board to further emphasize the importance of Juneteenth by increasing educational efforts so that students and faculty can learn more about the history and experiences relating to Juneteenth that have shaped the United States.
