A Conversation with Ms. Opal Lee

June 17 | 6:00 pm CDT

We’re excited to announce that Ms. Opal Lee will join Royce Brooks and Texas Democratic Party Vice-Chair Dr. Carla Brailey on Thursday, June 17th, for a Juneteenth Celebration!

Ms. Opal Lee is a 94-year-old activist and lifelong Texan who has fought and campaigned to make Juneteenth a national holiday. Annie’s List is honored to highlight Ms. Opal Lee’s work and to have the opportunity to speak with her about preserving the history of Juneteenth, the holiday’s Texas origins, today’s fight for freedom, and her own powerful legacy as a social impact leader.

In addition to our conversation with Ms. Opal Lee, we are excited to share that special guests State Representative Nicole Collier and Beto O’Rourke will also join our Juneteenth Celebration!
