A View from the Inside: A Behind the Scenes Tour of the Virginia Historical Society
“Forever Free”: The Emancipation Proclamation
September 11, 2012 | Time: 10:30 AM -12:00 NOON
In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, we’ll take a look at slavery and emancipation in Virginia. We’ll also give a behind-the-scenes look at the process of compiling records for Unknown No Longer: A Database of Slave Names—the latest step by the VHS to increase access to its varied collections relating to Virginians of African descent.
Tours take place from 10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m. and cost $10 for VHS members and $17 for nonmembers.
Each tour is limited to 20 participants. Reservations are required and may be made on the VHS website or in the VHS Museums Shop.
No refunds will be given after reservations are made.
