It's June 19, 2012, which is celebrated as a "freedom from bondage" holiday in African-American culture commonly called "Juneteenth". However, more cultures are beginning to embrace that culture into their own, and teaching their children those particular aspects of American history! Not quite sure how to teach your family about Juneteenth? Educate yourself more after the jump.

Watch: Juneteenth 'A Celebration of Freedom'

One of my favorite quotes regarding the African-American culture states:

"America cannot understand its own history unless the African-American experience is embraced as a central factor in shaping who we are and what we have become as Americans." ~ Lonnie G. Bunch
