Virginia Trailblazer, Charles Alexander

Join us for an evening with Mr. Charles Alexander. On Monday the 20th at the Dumbarton Library, Mr. Alexander will discuss his experiences as one of the ‘Charlottesville 12‘. They were the first group of students to integrate the Charlottesville school system in 1959. It will be a great evening with a Virginia Trailblazer.

We will also be showing the film ‘Locked Out: The Fall of Mass Resistance’ at three of our libraries leading up to the 20th. The film discusses the times surrounding the integration of Virginia’s public schools. (preview below)
