"Juneteenth is a celebration of freedom—a chance to pay tribute to countless advocates, activists, and changemakers and the work they did to build a more perfect Union," Michelle Obama tweeted.

"In honor of Juneteenth," Beyoncé wrote on Instagram, "everything I wore for RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR tonight was created exclusively by Black designers."
"On Juneteenth, we commemorate the anniversary of the delayed but welcome news of freedom reaching the enslaved Black folks in Galveston, Texas," Barack Obama tweeted. "It's a reminder that even in the darkest hours, there is cause to hope — and a reason to keep building a country that lives up to its highest ideals."
"Last week, I got to bring my kid and my boys to the White House for the first-ever Juneteenth Concert on the South Lawn," Jennifer Hudson wrote on Instagram alongside photos from the visit. "So special to be able to share this historic moment with them . Thank you, President @joebiden and Vice President @kamalaharris for the invitation. We will never forget it. Happy #Juneteenth, everyone !"
