Juneteenth is an American holiday that commemorates the ending of slavery in the U.S. News of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, official January 1, 1863, did not reach the state of Texas for two and a half years, June 19, 1865. Gen. Lee surrendered in April, 1865 and things changed.  Juneteenth is a portmanteau of "June" and "nineteenth".

In honor of this event, there will be a celebration on Saturday, June 22nd held at Hanna Hall / Clark College where we will start and end our tour and can join in the festivities.

Let's draw inspiration from history and what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr called "life's most persistent and urgent question":

"What are you doing for others?"

We can honor his legacy by learning about our history and our leaders and by standing up for what is right in our communities and taking steps to make a positive impact on the world.

Description:

We will be riding past some of the well-known and lesser known points of local Black History.  This is a discovery ride for raising our awareness of our world.
