Danville by Choice and VFH’s History United are partnering to sponsor a “Sunday Supper” community conversation in honor of MLK Day and in a joint effort with Averett University’s Center for Community Engagement and Career Competitiveness.

Grab a delicious Sunday afternoon beer (or wine) and join us at 2 Witches Winery & Brewing Company from 3:30 – 5:00pm for a conversation about Danville’s local Civil Rights history, the current state of Danville relations and the strength of our community today. We’ll have some snacks available, but we encourage you to bring a dish to share with others!

Our discussion will also feature special guest Brendan Wolfe, managing editor of VFH’s Encyclopedia Virginia, who will frame our conversation with an exploration of Danville’s history of fraught race relations and struggle for civil rights, beginning with the Danville 1883 Race Riot.
