Lettice Graham is a 95-year-old New Yorker who returns to North Carolina every 2 years for her high school reunion. She graduated in 1941. She belongs to a growing demographic of older adults who are living active, illness-free lives. Part of what makes Lettice’s story compelling is that she graduated from an all-black high school in North Carolina during an era of segregation. Despite great odds, this school produced lawyers, Harvard grads and one of the first African-American football players. Just as Lettice was part of history then, she continues to make history as she approaches her 100th birthday and continues to swim five-days a week and lead an active social life. This project is pending publication.
