The History of Race and Ethnicity

in Charlottesville, Virginia

We hope you'll join us for an important  discussion about the racial and ethnic history of Charlottesville. Charlene Green, Manager of the Office of Human Rights, will address the following questions:

Did you know that in the 1860s there were more Africans and African Americans than Whites in this area?

That there was a group of Black men known as the "Four Hundreds" who owned land and businesses after the Civil War?

That Vinegar Hill started out as a neighborhood populated largely of Irish immigrants?
And that Charlottesville has a long history of different people coming together to fight segregation and discrimination?

All are welcome.
