April 1: Valentine Richmond History Center Community Conversations Series: Transportation on Broad Street with Susan Winiecki
Mama J's Kitchen, 415 N 1st St, Richmond, VA, United States, 6:00pm
The Valentine Richmond History Center collaborates with Richmond Magazine to present the Community Conversations series, conceived to engage the community in a dialogue about the region’s past and how that past can positively shape our collective future. Featured are five monthly discussions about various Richmond localities, from Shockoe Bottom to the Boulevard. A Richmond Magazine moderator will lead each discussion, illuminating historical and current-day perspectives that shape our understanding and experience of each location. As with any topic about Richmond’s history, race, place and identity are formative subtexts.
