During the time of enslavement, Dec. 31 held significant meaning for those who were enslaved. This was particularly true in 1862, when they awaited their freedom as the Emancipation Proclamation became law. Watch Night services continue to this day in African American churches across the country. What can we learn from this rich tradition? What do we await in the new year?
