In partnership with the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights and the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, The Fralin Museum of Art plans to mount a city-wide campaign to educate residents about the history of slavery and African American life in Charlottesville, as well as current realities for residents of color. The project will engage artists from the community in the design of posters and billboards communicating some of the history that is largely unknown to most Charlottesville residents. Three public dialogues and artmaking sessions will be held in August, September, and October. In addition, churches, organizations, and private groups will be able to host sessions for their members. Within the University, The Fralin Student Engagement Council will partner with the University Programs Council to host community dialogues and sign-making to raise awareness of the history of slavery at the University.
