Talking about Richmond in the 1960s

Join us as we collaborate with the Future of Richmond’s Past and the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities (VCIC) to offer our next series of “Community Conversations.” Each month we will discuss a decade in Richmond history starting with the 1960s. Attendees will contribute to the proposed Richmond Liberty Trail route, which will guide long-time residents and visitors alike as they explore the sites in our beloved city. Notable humanitarians recognized by the VCIC will come together in a panel discussion as we explore, interpret and discuss the evolution of our city over the past 50 years.

This will be the third iteration of the “Community Conversations” series. The purpose of the series is to engage the community in a dialogue about the region’s past and how that past can positively shape our collective future. The more people that join in the conversation, the more productive our efforts become, and the easier it will be for everyone to see ourselves in the history of the region.

Free and open to the public. All events will be held at the History Center from 6-8 p.m.
