This collection contains images and information from the African-American Schools in Chesterfield County During the Segregated Era Exhibit presented by the African-American History Committee of the Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia.
The schools represented in the Exhibit operated in an era when the official doctrine of “Separate, But Equal” education was implemented as “Separate, and Unequal.”
In presenting this Exhibit, the African-American History Committee acknowledges and honors the parents, teachers, administrators and staff who supported these schools for 100 years.
The Exhibit was presented in the Chesterfield County Museum, and was originally planned to run from February 2014 through July 2014. However, the exhibit was extended into 2016 because of its popularity, and because of the very positive public response.
