Juneteenth, originating in 1865 and observed annually on June 19, commemorates the official end of slavery in the U.S. (more than 2 years after Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and months after the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, if we’re getting technical).
In commemoration of this day, the DC Fan Art Club lent their talents to showcase black cast members of DCU comic, live action and animated lore.
