Honoring Juneteenth: Reflecting on Freedom and Celebrating Progress

On June 19, 1865, Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, bringing the long-awaited news that the more than 250,000 enslaved Black people in the state were free.

This historic day, known as Juneteenth, is now officially recognized as a federal holiday. Juneteenth is a time for celebration, family gatherings, reflection on the past, and a hopeful look toward the future.

Here at Covenant Global, we honor Juneteenth as a momentous occasion that marks the emancipation of enslaved Black Americans. It is a time for us to reflect on the resilience and courage of those who endured oppression, and to celebrate the progress towards equality and justice.

A message from Covenant Global’s President and CEO, Tim Choquette:

Juneteenth honors the end of slavery in the United States. Let’s all take a moment to reflect on our history and celebrate freedom.”
