How Are Celebrities Showing up for Juneteenth Today?

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, which commemorates when the news of the Emancipation Proclamation finally reached the last slaves in Galveston, Texas in 1865, has long been celebrated by the Black community. This year, amid movements to condemn police brutality against BIPOC, Juneteenth is being recognized by society at large. Some major employers are observing today as a work holiday, and stars are joining the movement.
