February President's Message
Carter G Woodson, a Virginia Native son, born to former slaves becomes the Father of Black History. He founded Negro History Week. That week turned into a month, Black History Month.
I grew up in a bubble at the Center of the Universe. No, not Ashland, Va. No, not New York City. Yes, Brooklyn NY or Kings County, sharing the Long Island with Queens County and across the bay from Richmond County (Staten Island). While I would never live in Richmond County, NY, I love living in the historic rich city of Richmond, in Central VA. This is a great month to explore our rich Virginia Black History. Should you accept it, our mission this month is to visit various historic locations, take a picture and send it to email@example.com to post on our website. One option is in front of UVA’s Carter B Woodson Institute. Another is on the Trail of Freedom in Fredericksburg. A third option is at the Reconciliation Statue in Richmond. More to come…
