Celebrating Juneteeth made be new to many, but not for Tina Knowles and her family.

When asked about it, she said, “When I got older, I was able to go to Houston to Emancipation Park, and they have big beautiful parades there. We’ve always celebrated; it’s always been a very important holiday.”

She added, “That’s up to us parents to impart that knowledge to our children and pass it on. My kids celebrate the 19th of June. They always have, and they always will.”

Have you always celebrated Juneteenth? Will you going forward?
