Lee is the retired teacher, counselor and activist who led the push to make Juneteenth a federal holiday. Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition finalist Huckaby portrays his friend in a life-sized oil painting. Sitting at her dining room table, she seems to welcome viewers to join her in conversation.
