Raised/Razed – Documentary Screening & Panel by VMHC (Black History Month)

February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Through the lens of Raised/Razed, a recently released documentary from Maupintown Media in association with Virginia Public Media, viewers will learn about the history of Vinegar Hill, Charlottesville, Virginia’s oldest African American neighborhood, and the impact of the federal Urban Renewal program on a once-thriving community, all in the name of progress. This film is presented in part by the support of VPM.

Showtime is at 6:30 p.m., and the screening will be followed by opportunities to join in conversation with a panel of community members. This free event is hosted by Virginia Museum of History & Culture as a part of their Created Equal Film Series at 428 N Arthur Ashe Blvd, Richmond, VA 23220.
