The North Texas lady known as the grandma of Juneteenth visited Fort Worth's Uplift Ascend for a schoolwide book reading Monday.
Opal Lee is a long-lasting instructor who is energetic about showing individuals youthful and old about the meaning of Juneteenth.
She read portions from her book "Juneteenth: A Children's Story" to understudies and staff.
"All slaves are free! The slaves were so cheerful they began celebrating, and we've been praising each other since," she said.
Lee's endeavors throughout the long term helped transform Juneteenth into a government occasion, which Congress made authority only in front of the event last month.
