Making Our Way Together
Please join us on Saturday, December 14 for a special visit to the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center. We will meet our guide at the Center to tour the school and its history exhibits to learn about the rich heritage and legacy of the African-American community in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area. After the tour, a member of the Center staff will facilitate a more in-depth discussion of the topics covered and their connection to the present day.
There is a $5 tour fee for adults, free for high school students. Fees will be collected on site. Ample parking is available.
We hope many of you will be able to join us!
