3 Places to Celebrate Juneteenth in Houston


In some places, the day known as Juneteenth slips by unnoticed. That’s not the case in Houston, Texas. On June 19th, 1865, slavery was officially ended in the United States.

The Kardashians earn plenty of their own money, and a couple of them have also married well. The result: A fleet of drool-worthy automobiles.
