The 2019 Commemoration has partnered with organizations across the Commonwealth of Virginia to develop programs and events of national and international significance designed to bring awareness to the historical events of 1619 and the Commemoration’s key themes of Democracy, Diversity, and Opportunity.

If your organization would like to become involved in the efforts of 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution,  we would love to hear from you. For more information, email or call 757-253-4219.
