TheGuardian - The US has officially recognized Juneteenth, the holiday which commemorates the end of slavery in America, as a federal holiday after Pres. Biden signed a bill into law just today.

We come to terms with the mistakes we made. And remembering those moments, we begin to heal and grow stronger.”
