Juanita Craft, at the age of 73, was elected to the Dallas City Council, where she ultimately served for two terms. As a tribute to her amazing legacy of public service and having a positive impact on so many lives, a recreation center, a park, and a U.S. Post Office in Dallas have been named in her honor.

This Round Rock Woman transformed the deep hurts of racial discrimination into a lifetime of courageous work for its elimination.

Juanita Craft, home-grown trailblazer having a positive impact!
