Beloved Community Cville is hosting an online “Slave Auction Block Vigil: Honoring the Ancestors” that will be live streamed from the Historic Court Square in downtown Charlottesville.

Community members (Don Gathers, Cauline Yates, Apostle Sarah Kelley, Jalane Schmidt, and others) will acknowledge the trauma which took place there and honor local enslaved ancestors. Due to COVID-19, this event is in-person for only the participants, but you can register to join via Zoom.

Sponsored by Beloved Community Cville with support from Virginia Humanities, and WTJU.

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
