The History of Juneteenth Celebrations, Juneteenth Celebrations in Honolulu. Our topic is Juneteenth Celebration. “Juneteenth” celebrates June 19, 1865-the day when enslaved people in Texas received word that US Civil War had ended and they were free. It was the first time in almost 250 years that there was no legal slavery in North America. We’re observing Juneteenth in Hawaii to honor the hope our ancestors experienced in that moment as they reconnected to their kin and dreamed of generations to come.
