Tanesha Hudson Documentary: A Legacy Unbroken Now Available On-Demand

Now Available On-Demand: A Legacy Unbroken neither “whitewashes” the black experience in Charlottesville by viewing it from a white perspective nor focuses on its difficult and negative aspects: instead, through interviews with community leaders and ordinary residents and a wealth of archival photographs (from The Tribune in UVA Special Collections and family histories), it richly celebrates the many positive, resilient, and outstanding aspects of business, religious, family, and leisure-time life in Charlottesville’s African American community.

Blue Skies: Mayor Nikuyah Walker in Her Own Words

With this as the backdrop, we talked for three hours about equity, partnerships, governing style, and much more in a conversation that could have continued all day, if not interrupted by a family emergency. I hope to continue our discussion and present it here at another time. As always Mayor Walker was candid and fearless with her responses and insights. What comes through in our discussion is that she remains a champion of the under-represented as she is willing to force conversations that some deem difficult.
