Please join us for a program to educate league members and the public on voter suppression in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Encourage your families and friends to attend this thought-provoking program.
Karen Hughes White, one of the co-founders of the Afro-American Historical Association, will speak on the history of voter suppression in Virginia, especially as it affected African Americans. In the late 1980s, using abstracted Free Negro Registers, the AAHA started gathering information and opened the AAHA museum in The Plains in June 1997 to further its community outreach programs Its goals are
- To educate all in the African-American experience through programs, classes, workshops, and field trips,
- To foster the historical and genealogical heritage of Afro-Americans in Fauquier County, by research, restoration and preservation, and
- To make known places, structures, scenic views, events, family ancestry and other information as it pertains to the historic and cultural value and to preserve and restore historical landmarks.
