Black History Timeline
The Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia mourns the passing of our executive director, Adele C. Johnson. While we are saddened that we will no longer have the benefit of her warm smile, gracious demeanor, keen sense of community, and gentle spirit, we rejoice knowing she established a legacy for us all to continue. BHMVA has grown under her leadership and our mission to preserve the stories of African Americans from Virginia that inspire has never been stronger! There are no words to express how much we will miss Adele. To honor her memory and at her request, the family is asking that in lieu of any other acts of kindness, that memorial donations be made to the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia (P O Box 61052, Richmond, VA 23261).
Now More Than Ever
Every day at the Black History Museum we tell stories about Black history, art, and culture. Why? Because our history is deeper, richer, and more significant than a handful of dates and events than learned about in school. The Black History Museum offers a dynamic multi-dimensional learning experience which includes history and art exhibitions, community conversations, literary presentations, social gatherings, documentary screenings, historic portrayals, and cultural activities. We also partner with other organizations to broaden our reach and make Black history, art, and culture even more meaningful and memorable. But we can’t continue to do this without your help. Many thanks to our steadfast supporters, who have played a pivotal role in preserving our important past and inspiring a bright new future. We sincerely appreciate their invaluable support and the museum’s continued success is dependent on the ongoing generosity of current members and the recruitment of new members.
Here are four ways you can help:
Join and renew your membership annually so we can count on your active involvement;
Bring your family to visit, learn, and share our history;
Make an annual donation because each and every dollar helps our ongoing operations; and
Become an ambassador by sharing your experience and inviting others to become members and supporters too.
