Monday, March 1 at 8:30 p.m. online
Some of Richmond’s restaurants have been around for over a century … and some of their patrons have been around that long, too. This event features haunting stories of historic eateries – both near and far. Fun if you believe in ghosts, fun if you don’t.
Tuesday, March 2 at 7 p.m. Presented by the Virginia Museum of History & Culture
If you’re one of the first African American students to attend an integrated school in the deep south – well, you’re probably going to have a movie made about you. Tune into this historically inspired film on your own (it’s available on so many places!), then join the Virginia Museum of History & Culture for a post-viewing discussion.
