JUNETEENTH FLAG TO FLY

JUNETEENTH FLAG TO FLY

The Juneteenth Flag will fly over the Wisconsin Capitol on Friday. 

Governor Tony Evers announced the plan today as a way to make the state more racially equitable.  Junetheenth is traditionally marked on June 19th when Union soldiers told blacks in Texas in 1865 that they were no longer slaves because the Civil War was over.  Wisconsin started recognizing Juneteenth in 2009.
