Mission Statement

Located in the Jefferson School City Center, the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center’s mission is to honor and preserve the rich heritage and legacy of the African-American community of Charlottesville-Albemarle, Virginia and to promote a greater appreciation for, and understanding of, the contributions of African Americans and peoples of the Diaspora locally, nationally and globally.

Description

The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center is a combination history museum and contemporary art gallery. Our rotating exhibit of contemporary art highlights African American arists as well as artwork that speaks to the African American experience. Our permanent history exhibit, entitled "Pride Overcomes Prejudice," tells the story of the Jefferson School, the community it served, and the continuous attempt by African Americans to acquire agency through education.
