Author Opal Lee, a 96-year-old activist, wrote this children's book about how African Americans were freed from slavery after the Civil War. She explains how slaves in Galveston, Texas, learned on June 19 that they were free, more than two years after President Lincoln had freed them. Opal Lee is considered the Grandmother of Juneteenth. Because of her crusade, it was made a national holiday in 1921.
