The Sweet Treats team serves up Soul Food cupcakes and savory sides in honor of Juneteenth celebration on Saturday, June 19, 2021.

Last week, President Joe Biden signed into law recognition of June 19 — affectionately known as Juneteenth — as a national holiday to be celebrated every year in the United States.

People across Texas and other parts of the country have celebrated Juneteenth annually for longer than a century.
