Juneteenth, or Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, America's Second Independence Day, has spread in popularity exponentially. Participants will learn about long-held myths, blatant untruths, misinterpretations, and one enduring fallacy associated with the holiday. The news of emancipation did not reach Texas until two and a half years after the proclamation was issued. Donald J. Norman-Cox, a native Texan and public historian, will lead the class.
