Cincinnati Officials Raise Juneteenth Flag at City Hall

Officials gathered in Cincinnati, Ohio, to raise the Juneteenth flag at City Hall on Friday, June 18, a day after Juneteenth was designated a federal holiday in the United States.

Juneteenth, observed on June 19, celebrates the abolition of slavery and emancipation of enslaved African Americans. US President Joe Biden signed a bill on Thursday to officially make Juneteenth a federal holiday.
