Join the Koinonia School of Race & Justice at Richmond Hill for a special Black History Month program focused on the enslaved community at Richmond Hill and African American burial sites.

The event is a dynamic panel that features Historic Preservation Architect Jobie Hill, Ana Edwards of the Defenders of Freedom, Justice & equity, Brian Palmer of Friends of the East End Cemetery and Lauranett Lee from the University of Richmond. They will discuss the slave house at Richmond Hill and how burial sites can help us tell a truer story of Richmond’s complicated history.

Learn about acts of resistance and the successes of long forgotten black communities during and after enslavement. Along with School Board Member Cheryl Burke as a respondent, the panel will also consider how we can empower our children with new knowledge.

This free, public event was made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
