NEW YORK - NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio participated in a Black Lives Matter street painting on Staten Island to announce the Big Apple will recognize Juneteenth as an official city holiday to recognize the liberation of the last freed Black slave. "We will give this day the importance and recognition it deserves," said de Blasio, adding "every student and city worker will have the opportunity to reflect on the meaning of our history through the pain and struggle that should bring an extraordinary purposefulness and vision to inspire change."
