A banner for the Juneteenth Jubilee Celebration hangs from a lamp post in downtown Louisville.

Juneteenth is now a federal holiday and is widely celebrated by Black folks all over the country, but it was Black Texans who were the first to mark the day that some of the last enslaved people in the Confederacy learned of their freedom.

How does Texas commemorate Juneteenth? Join us for a live special edition of WNYC's "The United States of Anxiety," Sunday at 6 p.m. on WFPL. In collaboration with Houston Public Media and KERA, host Kai Wright will talk with Texans about their Juneteenth celebrations and take calls from people celebrating around the country.

Listen Sunday evening at 6 on 89.3 WFPL, or stream online.
