Starting July 26, the Reston Museum will host the Virginia Museum of History and Culture’s traveling exhibit: Determined: The 400-Year Struggle for Black Equality.
Determined traces four centuries of Black history in Virginia through stories of extraordinary individuals who struggled for equality and, in the process, profoundly shaped the nature of American society and the meaning of our collective ideals. Their stories help us to understand the origins of today’s problems and to reckon with the painful legacies of slavery, segregation, and white supremacy. These determined individuals also inspire us to create a better future.
Along with the Determined exhibit, the Reston Museum will feature artifacts from the Reston Museum’s collection showcasing Reston’s founding as a diverse community and how Restonians continued to pursue equality for all members of their community.
Exhibit will be on display until August 28th. To learn more about visiting the museum visit https://www.restonmuseum.org/visit.
