Clarion University has celebrated Juneteenth for 20 years, but on Friday, the new Penn West consolidation of Clarion, Edinboro and California universities celebrated Juneteenth as the newest federal holiday at Clarion.

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when slaves in Texas first learned they were free after the Civil War ended. The news came two and a half years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.
