This curriculum sample discusses Juneteenth, an annual celebration of the freeing of slaves in Texas in 1865.
The author writes: "People in the African American community have been celebrating Juneteenth for years but very few people knew the meaning or origin of Juneteenth or why it's celebrated in Biloxi. I felt that Juneteenth was important content for the students in the class and that exploring this subject would allow me to bring in issues about freedom, voting, equality and how literacy relates to these issues."
