Hear Together: Jefferson School African American Heritage Center

The Jefferson School is one of two remaining buildings from what was once Vinegar Hill–a 20-acre predominantly Black neighborhood in the heart of Charlottesville that was bulldozed in the ’60s after being seized through eminent domain. The Jefferson School started as the only Black school in Charlottesville, only to be decommissioned when schools were desegregated. The alumni of the original school wanted a place that would celebrate the building’s history, and by extension the Black history of Charlottesville, and the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center (JSAAHC) opened in 2013.

Along with a permanent picture gallery that tells the story of Vinegar Hill, the JSAAHC offers rotating contemporary art exhibitions featuring artists of the diaspora, lectures, a film and theater program, as well as six annual public celebrations. It is also home to the Isabella Gibbons Local History and Digital Humanities Center, which researches the history of Albemarle County and the surrounding region from enslavement through the present.

“There is a Vinegar Hill in every single city in America,” says Leslie M. Scott Jones, assistant curator of education and public programs at JSAAHC.

You can listen to the full segment at the audio link below and learn more about the Jefferson School at their website.

Community Connection: Swim Across America

Swim Across America funds cancer research, clinical trials and patient programs by hosting swim events across the country. On Saturday, August 27th, they are proud to partner with the VCU Massey Cancer Center to host the fourth annual, family friendly, swim – OR float – event  along the James River.

This year’s swim has special meaning to event director Jay Peluso, as his sister Michele was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer. Instead of shaving heads in solidarity, Michelle issued a challenge: to find and wear a crazy wig. She wants to laugh, she said. She is going to need to laugh.

The idea was born to host a Crazy Wig Night at the Richmond Flying Squirrels, where her son, Chris, plays — to help raise awareness — and hopefully, the spirits of those fighting cancer.

To learn more about Swim Across America and the Squirrels Crazy Wig event, you can visit the Richmond event page or simply Google Swim Across America Richmond.

Massey is committed to making a future without cancer possible – one event. And one crazy wig and one laugh at a time – if that’s what it takes.

Hear Together: UMFS Foster Care

For 120 years, UMFS Foster Care has worked relentlessly to help children, teens, and families thrive in their communities. Their trained staff collaborates with foster parents and families to overcome the challenges of traumatic childhoods to create homes that are safe and welcoming.

There are about 4,800 youth in foster care across Virginia, with 1,800 of them open for adoption. Over the past year, they’ve noticed a 54 percent drop in foster parent approval, and UMFS is working to empower flexible, caring adults who want to serve children but might be unsure of how foster care can work.

We spoke with foster parent recruiter Katie Solvig for this Hear Together profile. You can listen at the audio link below and learn more about their services and becoming a foster parent at UMFS.org.

UMFS is a proud financial supporter of WNRN.
