Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, is an American holiday celebrated annually on June 19. It commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union general Gordon Granger read federal orders in Galveston, Texas, that all previously enslaved people in Texas were free.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 is a week-long virtual celebration. The City of Franklin partnered with the African American Heritage Society of Williamson County to produce videos related to Juneteenth in Franklin.
