On 19 June this year, perhaps because George Freud was killed, americans more attention than ever before a festival – the black emancipation day Juneteenth “June festival”, the word is June 19 and the mixture of the two words, to the memory of the June 19, 1865, confederate general Gordon granger for African americans read the emancipation proclamation.
Today, the Google doodle team brought their own special animated doodle to mark the 155th anniversary of union army major general Gordon granger’s arrival in Galveston, Texas, to read the federal order to abolish chattel slavery in the state, also known as the end of slavery in the United States.
The video begins with an animated depiction of General No. 3’s decree: “All slaves are free.” Then blacks begin to celebrate their life after freedom, as general No. 3 said, including the right to education, the right to vote and the right to use the same facilities as whites.
Last year Google was criticised for not publishing graffiti to mark the June festival. When David Chester, a freelance artist from Georgia, noticed that the company did not create a single graffiti, he did one himself. This picture depicts a black man’s hands breaking free from the chains. It spread on social media and Google eventually contacted Chester, hoping to offer him a job.
