Juneteenth: US to add federal holiday marking end of slavery
Jun 17, 2021 40 secs
The US Congress has overwhelmingly passed a bill to add a federal holiday to the calendar marking Juneteenth - the end of slavery in the nation.

She said the Juneteenth federal holiday was brought forward to "commemorate the end of chattel slavery, America's original sin, and to bring about celebration".

Clay Higgins, a Louisiana Republican, said he would support the measure, even though he objected to the bill's proposal to name the new holiday Juneteenth National Independence Day.

In 1980, Texas became the first state to observe Juneteenth as an official holiday.
