Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, or Emancipation Day, marks the historic moment when news of the Emancipation Proclamation reached the last enslaved individuals in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865. This momentous occasion symbolizes the end of the darkest chapters in American history and the beginning of a new era of freedom.Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated joins the nation in commemorating Juneteenth, a day of profound significance in the history of African Americans. It was the steadfastness of our very own trailblazing sorority member Ms. Opal Lee (affectionately referred to as the “Grandmother of Juneteenth”) to ensure the impact of this day was recognized by all Americans which led to the establishment of the legislation needed which resulted in President Joe Biden’s signature in June 2021 proclaiming Juneteenth a federal holiday. On this day, we celebrate Soror Lee, commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and recognize our ancestors’ tenacity, strength, and triumph.As members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated we are committed to advancing social justice, uplifting marginalized voices, and dismantling systems of oppression. We strive to create a world where every individual can thrive, regardless of race, ethnicity, or background. Let us embrace togetherness and work to increase understanding across varied cultures. We can generate sustainable change and develop a society that embraces the principles of equality, fairness, and freedom through education, conversation, and collective action.#zetaphibeta #zphib #zphib1920 #HappyJuneteeth #WeWalkWithOpal ...
