African-American Cultural Heritage Month

February 1, 2019 - March 2, 2019

The first Africans, captured in west central Africa and brought to Virginia in 1619, came from a rich Angolan civilization. Throughout the month, visitors can compare Angolan culture with that of the English and Powhatan Indians they encountered in Virginia through interactive education programs in the museum galleries accompanied by engaging visuals and music.
