Camden celebrates Juneteenth
Camden’s Boykin Park was filled to the brim Friday evening with people celebrating Juneteenth a day early. Juneteenth, officially observed on June 19, which was Saturday, that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved Blacks in America. It originated in Galveston, Texas, where -- on June 19, 1865 -- slaves living there learned they had been freed by the Emancipation Proclamation.
