T.I. and Tiny’s daughter, Heiress Harris, held quite the celebration in honor of Juneteenth this past weekend. The little one invited all of her friends to “The Black House” the commemorate the day.
Juneteenth is celebrated on June 19th every year. The day marks the moment union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform freed slaves of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and to, thereby, ensure that former slave owners complied with the law. Union soldiers arrived in Galveston on June 19, 1865, which was over two years after Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
Heiress commemorated the day with her friends this past Saturday (June 19). Kandi Burruss along with her younger children, Blaze and Ace, joined Lena Huggar and her daughter, Rory, at the party. “Celebrated #Juneteenth with Rory and her friends this weekend,” Lena told her social media fans after the festivities convened. “The #juneteenthcelebration at @heiressdharris house was lit,” a post from Ace Tucker’s Instagram page read.
President Joe Biden made history last week by making Juneteenth a federal holiday. “Juneteenth marks both the long, hard night of slavery and subjugation, and a promise of a brighter morning to come,” the president said in a statement regarding the new federal holiday.
“This is a day of profound — in my view — profound weight and profound power,” Biden added. “At the same time, I also remember the extraordinary capacity to heal, and to hope, and to emerge from the most painful moments and a bitter, bitter version of ourselves, but to make a better version of ourselves.”
