Juneteenth 2023

Juneteenth is a holiday that marks the day, on June 19, 1865, when the last enslaved people in the United States learned they were free. You may also hear it called Juneteenth Independence Day, Freedom Day, Second Independence Day or Emancipation Day. The Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, had established that all enslaved people in Confederate states in rebellion against the Union “shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” However, it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control.


The 2023 Central Alabama Pride Parade was held on Saturday, June 10 in downtown Birmingham. Many organizations, businesses and community partners participated in the parade including Heersink School of Medicine and the UAB Department of Pediatrics.
