Celebrating Freedom and Resilience: Juneteenth at CHN Healthcare Group

June 19th marks Juneteenth, a national holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. CHN Healthcare Group joins the nation in celebrating this historic day, recognizing the resilience and strength of the African American community. 

The Legacy of Juneteenth 

On June 19th, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, announcing the end of the Civil War and the emancipation of enslaved people. This news, though delayed by over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, marked a pivotal moment in American history. 

Juneteenth became a day of celebration for African Americans, a time to commemorate freedom, reflect on the past, and look towards a brighter future. Today, Juneteenth is a national holiday observed across the country with parades, music, food, and cultural events.
