The Importance of Juneteenth And Why You Need To Celebrate It

Target, Nike, Google, Twitter, Lyft, and other billion dollar companies are recognizing Juneteenth as a paid holiday. On the other hand, why hasn’t America praised Juneteenth as much as the Fourth of July?

“The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free.” This order, that Gordon Granger read in 1865, was a pivotal moment in History.

Juneteenth is recognized as a national holiday that celebrates the ending of slavery in the United States. Texas, a Southern State, had over 250,000 slaves when the Emancipation Proclamation was enacted. Juneteenth is highly celebrated in Texas, but surprisingly not in other states in America. Many American’s do not know about Juneteenth because it is hidden from our textbooks and minds.

Ways To Celebrate Juneteenth

The best way to celebrate Juneteenth is by educating people around you the importance of this national holiday. Telling your friends, family members, and other peers about Juneteenth is very important of keeping black history alive.

Many popular Juneteenth activities include barbecuing, fishing, and rodeos.

“Juneteenth almost always focused on education and self improvement”

Certain foods like pork and lamb became very popular once slaves were freed. These foods were not available on a daily basis, so they became foods for special occasions.

    What am I doing wrong? Am I putting the comments in the wrong place? Should they be closer to the beginning of the post, or in the middle, or where? Thanks. Catherine
    Getting comments is the bane of my existence! I try to end the post with a question about how my readers are using [insert topic] and no one responds. I have tried to hold contests where I will give them FREE PUBLICITY for a comment and nada.

    When I ask a question at the end of a post, I always get responses. I do it judiciously, though, as I like to ‘mix it up’ and not always ask for a response.
    Hi James – great advice. I’m trying to ask open ended questions at the end of my posts, but it doesn’t always work, and often people will comment, but not answer the questions.

  5. On my own blog, which I just recently started up, I know I don’t have much of a readership so it will take a while to develop comments and community, but I still want to do things right…So I’ll definitely keep this article in mind…particularly your comment #5, which I think deserves to be a follow-up article in itself.
    …I have found that the “be first to leave a comment” has worked sometimes, but possibly intimidated in other circumstances. Yeah, a lot of people would love to be the first to post on popular blogs, but on startups? Not always.

  6. No James, that’s the way you wrote it (or at least the way I got it). Don’t blame me, I would never ask a yes or no question. 🙂
    …okay, but seriously – this is something I need to work on. On a number of the blogs that I get paid to write for, I have no idea how many people are reading (since I post, but don’t manage or market the blog) and I’m frustrated when there aren’t comments.

  7. Great post! I think design also plays into encouraging people to post comments. I’ve seen on some other blogs where they change the default “leave a reply” on a new post to “Be the first to post a comment!” depending on your audience that is very inviting.
    Nothing like a little controversy, a edge, to generate a conversation? (this is a question, don’t you think?)
