TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Juneteenth, or June 19, commemorates the last enslaved African Americans being freed from slavery in 1865.

The holiday has grown in observance countrywide over the past few years and the Senate passed a bill Tuesday, June 15, 2021, making Juneteenth a federal holiday.

This year, Juneteenth falls on a Saturday in a post-pandemic climate, leaving many wondering how they can support Black-owned businesses, so ABC 27 compiled a list of Black-owned businesses in the Big Bend area.
