Community Commentary/Opinion: For Black people in Charlottesville, fixing broken systems is life or death

Vinegar Hill magazine staff was featured on the WTJU 91.1FM podcast Soundboard today talking about the “Determined” series. Check it out here!
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. It shows how the black community achieved success despite all the obstacles that Southern racism placed in their path.
Film maker Tanesha Hudson premieres her film A Legacy Unbroken: The Story of Black Charlottesville to a sold out crowd on Saturday, November 23, 2019 and to a sold out encore showing the next day.
Our subjects will cover least traveled places, best countries to travel to for people of color, safest cities to travel for women, and traveling on a budget and more!

It took me my whole life to figure out that I’m a fool, but I ain’t no dummy. Never have been.” The truth is that throughout his entire educational career, Chris believes that his genius was never tapped into, at least at school.
