COLUMBIA, S.C. — A petition to make Juneteenth a SC holiday is making rounds .
For five years, Jamal Bradley has helped put on the Juneteenth Festival in Columbia.
Juneteenth is a date commemorating the freeing of the last slaves in the United States.
The day has been adopted by many states as a holiday but not yet in South Carolina.
The bill is still in committee discussion but Bradley hopes the signatures on the petition will help show lawmakers what the community thinks.
