Happy Juneteenth!

Today we commemorate Juneteenth, the day in 1865 that enslaved African-Americans in Texas learned that they were free. NGS is committed to helping all people discover inspirational family stories of freedom and to share them forward.
NGS board member Bernice Alexander Bennett’s discovery of a family story led to an exciting historic initiative: Honoring Black Resilience Through the Black Homesteader’s Project
Happy Juneteenth!
