Juneteenth is a federal holiday that marks the end of slavery in the United States. It commemorates June 19, 1865, the day when the final enslaved people were told in Galveston, Texas, that they were free. Juneteenth is an important milestone in American culture. It celebrates the liberation from discriminatory, immoral, and inhumane beliefs, policies, and systems that we cannot afford to repeat. In 1867, the Freedmen's Bureau organized the first Juneteenth celebration. The day (melding the words `June' and `nineteenth') was first celebrated in Galveston.

Testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men aged 20 to 39 years. Non-Hispanic White men, Native American men, and Alaskan Native men are more likely to be diagnosed with testicular cancer.
