Emancipation Day is a day that marks the ending of enslavement for many people of Afrikan descent. Emancipation Day is celebrated in many former British colonies in the Caribbean and areas of the United States on various dates in observance of the emancipation of enslaved people of African origin. The Slavery Abolition Act 1833 ended slavery in the British Empire on August 1, 1834 and throughout the Caribbean Emancipation Day is widely observed during the first week of August. In many Caribbean countries the Emancipation Day celebration is a part of Carnival, as the Caribbean Carnival takes place at this time (although Carnaval in Trinidad and Tobago takes place in February or March according to Ash Wednesday, not near August. In the U.S. different states have different days that they mark and celebrate Emancipation Day.
