Juneteenth States (copy)

During a ceremony in front of the replica Amistad slave ship, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont speaks on June 10, 2022, in New London, Conn., before signing a copy of legislation that establishes a new legal state holiday on June 19 to be known as Juneteenth Independence Day, one of at least six adopted by states over the past few months. The original Amistad was a 19th-century schooner known for a revolt in 1839, where captives who had been sold to slave traders took control of the ship, which was subsequently towed to New London.

Juneteenth, a federal holiday commemorating emancipation of enslaved African Americans, is observed Monday, June 20. Here is a list of schedules and closures for the weekend:

Banks, credit unions: Many will be closed Monday.
