On June 19, 1865, Union Army General Gordon Granger and 2,000 federal troops arrived to formally inform the enslaved Black and African American people of Galveston and Texas - about a quarter of a million people - that the Emancipation Proclamation had freed them.

More than 150 years later, the resounding effects are still ever present. It is important we take time to restore ourselves.
