Enacting Freedom

Black Virginians in the Age of Emancipation

In the age of Emancipation, freedom was more than just a word. Explore how African Americans from local Virginia communities experienced – and defined – freedom after enslavement, and how their experiences connect to our lives today.

This exhibit is a collaboration between the faculty and students of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech, and the American Civil War Museum. It was made possible in part by support from Virginia Humanities.
