Currently there is a modern day civil rights movement taking place in this country as people are coming together from all races around the globe in an attempt to push for change when it comes to social injustice, police reform and the state of black and brown people.

This movement has brought more attention to what is sometimes known as America’s second Independence Day, Juneteenth. June 19th, 1865, the day slavery officially ended in the United States, is getting much more attention and is even garnering support to become a federal holiday.

A flag was created to represent the day and contains colors and symbols which all stand for something.
