On June 19, 1865 the last slaves of Texas received the information that they were free men and women. In commemoration of this moment in history, June 19 has become known as “Juneteenth” and is recognized as a day of celebration in African-American communities across the country.
In honor of Juneteenth, The MinorityEye is kicking-off its Beyond February web-series; an initiative that highlights little known black history facts throughout the year.
Our first feature focuses on Columbia’s Capital City Club and its quiet fight to give women and minorities an upscale place to network and conduct business outside of an office setting.
