June 19th is "Juneteenth," marking the day in 1865 when word finally got to a group of slaves in Texas that they were free.
That was more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed by President Lincoln.
The day is celebrated around the country, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's niece, Dr. Alveda King, was at Fountain's Juneteenth Sunday.
She says if the event has all the trappings of a 4th of July party, there's a reason. "Independence and emancipation are very similar," she says. "You just had two parts of the country fighting for freedom in different ways. But freedom for everybody ends up being the same."
