Grandmother, who was banned from putting on her ideal wedding gown when she was younger, is now able to do so at the age of 94…

Times and traditions are always changing, and for the most part, this is a positive development as we strive towards a more enlightened future.

Someone who can testify to the advantages of social progress is Martha Mae Ophelia Moon Tucker, 94 years old, who was recently allowed to realize a lifetime ambition of hers by wearing a traditional wedding dress, over seven decades after she was denied the chance to do so in 1952.

According to sources, Tucker was one of many people who suffered as a result of racial segregation legislation in the 1950s. She resided in Alabama, where Black people were not permitted to visit bridal salons at the time she was married.

I believe I can speak for all of us when I say that we should be grateful to God for the many changes that have occurred during the last half-century or more.

The surprise wedding dress fitting was orchestrated by Tucker’s granddaughter, Angela Strozier, on July 3, 2021.

The next day, Angela posted their heartbreaking story on her Facebook page, and, unexpectedly, a large number of individuals found it to be a source of bittersweet pleasure in reading it.

The following is what Tucker told her granddaughter: ‘I’ve always wanted to try on a wedding dress.’ When I got married, I didn’t have a ring.’

Having heard her grandmother’s tragic story, Angela decided to act. Mere days after the revelation, Angela arranged a surprise wedding-dress fitting at David’s Bridal boutique in Hoover Alabama, including a makeover from a make-up artist!

After the outpouring of positive attention regarding her grandmother’s dress-fitting, Angela joked: “Now she’s saying, ‘Do you think Oprah may call me?’ I said, ‘I don’t think so Grandma.’
