Historic preservation grants focus on Seatack and Virginia Beach’s black history

In the first year of a grant program, the city’s historic preservation group recently gave just under $3,000 to support research of local black history.

Half of the six grants awarded by the Virginia Beach Historic Preservation Commission were dedicated to recording parts of the city’s African American history, specifically in Seatack, where community members are fighting for recognition and consideration in development plans.
