Fall 2021 Newsletter
Greetings to our Virginia African American Cultural Center family!
For everything there is a season and as the summer blends into fall, I can’t help but recall that on Sept. 24, 2016, we launched our first community engagement event called the “Blessing of the Land.” Even though it was on the same day as the grand opening of the National Museum for African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., we had a large audience of community leaders, local and regional politicians, faith-based and nonprofit organizations, storytellers, artists, African drummers, and youth. Since then, we have continued to maintain a presence in the community. Each new season brings another opportunity to share, grow and learn from each other and spread our vision to be the statewide leader in generating historical and cultural content through programs, artistic performances, and curated exhibits.
