Juneteenth

America Has Many Great Holidays, Juneteenth Is Amongst Them Today is the celebration of a big day in the annals of American History, but it is unfortunate that not everyone knows about it. It is celebrated by African Americans especially, because it commemorates the Abolition of Slavery in Texas and the emancipation of enslaved blacks throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States in 1865.

Combating Trolls While Protecting Privacy
