Celebrating Juneteenth: Resources to Help You Honor the Holiday

This year at DigitalMarketer, we decided to mark Juneteenth as an official company holiday in support of our Black employees who support us day in and day out. That said, while we’re taking today, June 19, to rest, spend time with our families/ loved ones, and develop ourselves about the importance of this vacation, we wanted to share some valuable aids. We’ve discovered these both useful and actionable as we’ve wandered to greater understanding and reflection of our country’s past.


If this is the first time you’ve heard of Juneteenth, it may be because the holiday began in Texas. Despite the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, enslaved beings in Texas weren’t actually freed until federal armies arrived to enforce the order two years later, on June 19, 1865. Today, Juneteenth is celebrated across the country as the end of slavery in the United Country. There’s, of course, greater autobiography in and around this observance, and these resources are a great place to start.
