Celebrate Juneteenth in Dallas with a ride on TRE

Opal Lee, a renowned activist, will lead her annual 2.5-mile walk at the African American Museum in Dallas on Wednesday, June 19th. The walk commemorates the delayed news of freedom reaching enslaved people in Texas after the Emancipation Proclamation.

The 2.5-mile distance signifies the 2.5 years it took for word of liberation to reach Texas and be enforced.

For those interested in attending, TRE offers a seamless connection to downtown Dallas. Participation allows attendees to walk alongside Lee and fellow participants, celebrating Juneteenth and its historical significance.

Virtual participation is also available through registration. Opal’s Walk Live events will be held in cities across the country. These options ensure everyone can participate in honoring Lee’s mission to support the National Juneteenth Museum and educate the nation about freedom and Juneteenth’s role in healing.
