Mazie is tired of hearing No! Her father scoops her up and tells her about the great celebration they will have the next day. He explains about the proclamation that freed the slaves and the announcement two years later in Galveston, Texas. He tells about the struggles of black people and why they celebrate and remember.

A beautiful book full of rich history of a holiday not taught in American schools until recently. Classroom applications are history, literacy, SEI.

This book would be good for primary and intermediate ages. This book is about a young girl named Mazie who talks about celebrating Juneteenth and that her ancestor are no longer slaves. She talks about the struggle that they faced but also the good things. In the classroom this would be good to talk about Juneteenth and the history of it.
