Juneteenth began when in 1865 Union soldiers entered Galveston, Texas on June 19, and announced that slavery in the confederate held states had ended. Keep in mind that the emancipation Proclamation had been signed two years previously. The year after, former slaves organized the first annual celebration on
June 19th for an opportunity to reflect and rejoice usually with speakers to impart information that is useful and contribute to their wellbeing, along with singing, dancing, art, sports and cooking. Juneteenth is now celebrated in 43 of the 50 U.S. States and District of Columbia as either s State holiday, day of observance or ceremonial holiday.

For Immediate Release
May 22, 2016
Meredith Etc, a small press in Jackson, Mississippi, proudly announces the release (May 28, 2016) of Mary’s Story & Song by Mary Haralson Coleman with Starkishia.
Mary was born in 1933 in Scott, County Mississippi to sharecroppers. Her memoir described her two fathers as the most significant people in her childhood. One of them was impoverished and indebted to white landowners, and the other owned property and was independent. They agreed to expose Mary to both worlds. Change is hard, but Mary found her way, and the inspiration to dream. With the gift of song and the mind to step out of the box, Mary broke ground in business and in song.
Mary’s Story & Song is available in softcover and hardcover, and in e-book format. Visit her author page for more information https://meredithetc.com/marys-story-song/.
Advance Praise for Mary’s Story & Song
Mrs. Coleman has written a book that everyone should read. We were both born in 1933 and lived in Mississippi during the years of the Black Civil Rights Movement. Her life is a living reality of the Black struggle and a greater true picture of the changes that occurred. I loved it.
James Meredith, Ole Miss, 1962
While this book is a personal account of the life of Mary Coleman, it is one with which we can all identify and cherish. I am sure that this historical account of her life will be something that generations coming after her will be able to use to get an understanding of from whence they came.
Judge William Walker
Mary’s Story and Song chronicles the great strides and struggles in the transformative life of the Haralson Family from slavery to freedom! Mrs. Coleman’s soft-spoken style and positive outlook is evident throughout this book and makes for a spirited autobiography that reads like a novel. It will serve as Mrs. Coleman’s testimony for many generations to come.
