Racial and Ethnic History Bus Tour of Charlottesville

Do you want to learn more about the City you live and work in? Do you feel the need to better understand the racial history of Charlottesville?

If so, join Charlene Green, with the Office of Human Rights at the City of Charlottesville, to take a tour of some important pieces of Charlottesville’s racial and ethnic history. This session examines the racial and ethnic history of Charlottesville focusing on the areas of court Square, University of Virginia, Vinegar Hill, and the Daughters of Zion Cemetery. Participants will get a chance to learn about how history has shaped our physical community and the social problems that challenge us today in those actual spaces.

The group will travel between sites on a bus provided by JAUNT. This bus is fully accessible. However, weather permitting, portions of the tour will take place outside at each of the sites. If you have questions about accessibility at specific sites please contact CNE directly.

Registered participants will meet at CNE at 8:30 a.m. The bus will depart promptly at 8:45 a.m.

Due to limited space, we are only accepting registrations the board, staff, and volunteers of current CNE-member organizations, at this time.

American Sign Language interpreters or other communication access accommodations are available upon request. Please submit any accommodations requests to Andrew Robinson, Program Manager, 434-951-9042 or arobinson@thecne.org.
