    The trappings of any summertime parade were there: the marching bands, the swivel-hipped cheerleaders dancing to a beat, the politicians waving from bunting-clad convertibles. Yet, this year's Houston Juneteenth festivities Saturday - in a city at the beginning of the now-national celebration to mark the emancipation of slaves - carried a distinct air of urgency.
