The governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, has signed legislation making Juneteenth a federal holiday in his state.

Georgia will now have 13 paid federal holidays.

Because Juneteenth falls on a Sunday this year, Georgia will observe the holiday on June 20th.

Juneteenth-celebrated on June 19th, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.

I think this should be an observed holiday nationally!
