Juneteenth is the newest federal holiday, established on June 17, 2021, and it commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in 1863.  Juneteenth was first celebrated on June 19, 1865 as the day two years after emancipation, when federal troops arrived in Galveston, TX to take control of the state and make sure all slaves were emancipated.

Emma Hansen, GMHS '22 winner

“I chose yellow, green and red—to symbolize the Ethiopian flag, which represents the Pan African ideology. I placed the Black female in front to show her pride of her culture.”

“I wanted to incorporate images that symbolize Black liberation and empowerment, such as the iconic raised fists, which are breaking apart the chains to commemorate the end of slavery.”
