Description

This book offers both highway and armchair travelers the first published guide to the locations and texts of more than three hundred state historical highway markers recalling significant people, places, and events in Virginia’s African American history. Published to coincide with the 2019 commemoration of the first documented arrival of Africans to present-day Virginia in 1619.  Showcases topics of state and national significance, spanning the colonial era through the mid-1960s and the civil rights movement. Nearly all of these markers were approved by the Virginia Board of Historic Resources within the past forty years, through early 2019, thereby enlarging the sweep and scope of the nation’s oldest statewide historical highway marker program.
