A “Fort Worth Discovery Tour” Partnership with Sister City Nagaoka, Japan

On August 20th at 7:30pm CST, the amazing Carlo Capua will be presenting a “Fort Worth Discovery Tour” on behalf of Fort Worth Sister Cities International.  This event will be entirely in Japanese in partnership with their Sister City friends in Nagaoka, Japan (Niigata Prefecture), and feature Fort Worth educator Dr. Michael Roemer and Nagaokan-turned-Texan Shigeaki “Shaggy” Meguro.  He will talk about Fort Worth culture, food, education, history, COVID, and explain how Juneteenth became the USA’s newest federal holiday thanks to the persistence of a 94 year-old lifelong Fort Worth resident and hometown hero, Opal Lee.
