Taylor Swift Explains Why Juneteenth Should Be Celebrated as a National Holiday

Taylor Swift continues to lift her voice in honor of African-Americans who celebrate Juneteenth, or June 19th which marks the day that Texas slaves received word of their freedom two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.
“Personally, I’ve made the decision to give all of my employees June 19th off in honor of Freedom Day from now on, and to continue to educate myself on the history that brought us to this present moment,” Taylor tweeted.

Swift continued saying recent events have allowed her and her family to “reflect, listen, and reprogram,” there lives where they haven’t been loudly anti-racist and will not allow their privilege to keep them from stand up for what’s right.
