The sports world and Juneteenth
Juneteenth is now a federal holday. June 19 marks the day that the last slaves in the U.S. learned that they were freed. Soldiers reached Galveston, Texas, with the news in 1865, two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
The sports world has acknowledged the holiday in several ways, from social media statements to educational projects.
