CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Juneteenth is this Saturday.

The annual holiday, which originated in Texas, commemorates the day in 1865 when slaves in Texas learned they were free, two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued.

Locally, the Corpus Christi Juneteenth Coalition, will be hosting the Ten Days of Celebration and Exploration of Emancipation, starting this Wednesday.
