The African-American History Committee of the Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia (CHSV) is seeking materials with which to create a museum exhibit featuring early African-American schools in Chesterfield County.
The CHSV search includes items such as photos, programs, rosters, school books and teacher materials, yearbooks and school props. Photos with persons who are identified are of particular interest; such items will be accepted on a loan basis for scanning and will be return to the original owners.
To lend items to CHSV, call Rev. Herbert Townes at (804) 379-3929 to coordinate a mutually convenient date, time and place to review any available items. Items must be submitted prior to September 30, 2013.
