From Resistance to Resilience: Black Virginia’s Path to Freedom (Day 2)

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us for a unique collaboration between the Robert Russa Moton Museum and Patrick Henry’s Red Hill in a compelling two-day event that connects the histories of our two sites by providing, in chronological order, Black Virginia’s path towards freedom. This event dives deep into the journey from the Early Republic to the Civil Rights Era, weaving a continuous narrative of Black Virginia’s history and the quest for equality.

By participating in both days, attendees will gain in-depth insights into the resilience and enduring legacy of these critical periods in history. We eagerly anticipate welcoming you to this enlightening journey.

Admission is Free, Lunch provided for both days. For convenience a Free Shuttle Bus will depart from the Red Hill to Moton at 9:00 am. Please indicate if you or your group would like to ride this bus when reserving your free tickets.
