Tiny Mason has nothing of her own, even her last name belongs to her master. In June of 1865, the Texas slaves hear rumors the war is over and they will soon be free. Tiny, impatient for freedom, sneaks away from the Mason Plantation in the back of a wagon bound for Galveston. In that port city, she hears Major General Granger read the proclamation announcing the slaves are free. Tiny joins the spontaneous celebration of her release from slavery, but her former owner tries to prevent the young girl from living a free life. The Young Texans Series spotlights origin of Juneteenth.
