Abstract
Black Virginians have shaped the history of the commonwealth – beginning in Jamestown in 1619 with “twenty and odd” Africans, through six regiments of the U.S. Colored Infantry at General Lee’s Appomattox surrender, and up to and beyond Governor L. Douglas Wilder, the first black governor elected in the nation since Reconstruction. The relationship between the Commonwealth’s past, and the future for black Virginians, is illuminated in geographic and demographic trends, examined in this report.
