Good morning -
On Saturday morning, October 20, 2018, historian and University of Richmond Jepson School of Leadership Studies Professor Lauranett Lee (above, left) placed flowers on the stones at the African Burial Ground before joining the father-son artists Jerome and Jeromyah Jones for a tour of their exhibition at Main Street Station's gallery. Both events marked the closing of the annual conference of the Virginia Africana Associates, which took place on October 19 & 20, 2018. The conference was held at historic Ebenezer Baptist Church (216 W Leigh Street Richmond,Virginia 23220).
I also thought I'd share this link to a 30-minute news program produced by students at VCU last week. https://youtu.be/Ok0s_UuX5Oo
