Can family and community history really help heal a nation? Virginia Humanities grantee Richmond Hill thinks so. Learning about how the past impacts the present brings us closer to understanding the truths of this country, increases empathy and makes the call for transformation even clearer. All are invited to join friends, neighbors, and community members in observation of Juneteenth, the anniversary of emancipation from enslavement for African Americans and in honor of African American resilience. Both virtual and in-person talks will be offered via zoom and the experiential offerings will take place in the Richmond Hill Garden. 

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
