Savannah James rings in Juneteenth day by sharing African-American flag art

Savannah James joined in the celebration of Juneteenth, a federal holiday celebrating the end of slavery in the United States. LeBron James' significant other marked the occasion by sharing a special African-American collage.

Instagram user Saloan Dunlap created an African-American flag art on Monday to celebrate Juneteenth week. Images from 2018, 1980s, 1995, 1970s and more were used to create this edit that drew plenty of attention from fans.

One of those admirers was Savannah James, who shared the post earlier today. She didn't add a caption, just the art.

Juneteenth commemorates the order on June 19, 1865 to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation after the American Civil War. The Emancipation Proclamation, issued by Abraham Lincoln in 1862, declared enslaved people -- primarily African-Americans -- in former Confederate states free.

As such, this holiday holds a special significance to the African-American community, of which Savannah James is a part.

Savannah James showed support to the WNBA with LeBron James

Savannah James has been under the spotlight during the offseason. LeBron James' wife has been spotted spending quality time with her husband in several places. They went together to watch Bronny James at the NBA Combine.

The couple was also seen supporting Bryce Maximus James while he played an AAU tournament. Moreover, they hyped up their daughter Zhuri during a volleyball game.

More recently, Savannah joined LeBron James, Rich Paul, Bam Adebayo and Damian Lillard in a WNBA game between the New York Liberty and the LV Aces.

Savannah James reveals she was scared to star in a podcast

Savannah is also working on her personal projects like her podcast 'Everybody's Crazy.' The 37-year-old always tried to keep a low profile and it wasn't until this moment that she showed an unknown side of her personality to the world.

"I think that for me, it's freeing because it allows me to show a side of my personality. We are both very private and I've been very private and kind of played the background this far in my husband's career. But I am excited to venture off into new things, we're going into new phases of our lives. And as nerve-racking and anxiety-ridden as it is to do something new, I'm really excited."

The James family has gotten more involved in the media in the last year. LeBron James started a podcast with potential LA Lakers new head coach JJ Redick and Savannah got some attention with her podcast, too.
