 1  The DC Emancipation Day Celebration

Though the District of Columbia Emancipation Act's three-way approach of immediate emancipation, compensation, and colonization did not serve as a model for the future, it was an early signal of slavery's death. Emancipation was greeted with great jubilation by the District's African-American community. For many years afterward, Washingtonians celebrated Emancipation Day on April 16 with parades and festivals.
