I tried to google "granny bondage" for a humorous pic to post. None suitable, and I hate myself a little.

Is this the video posted in the History of Slavery thread? Phone Post 3.0

If slavery ended on Juneteenth 1865, wouldn't that make her grandmother 149 years old?

I realize that it wasn't like waving a magic wand and snap everybody is free, it took time to get the word out.  Then it took even more time to actually get it done.  It didn't take 45 years to get it done.

I think her math is off.
