Being Indigenous in Jim Crow Virginia
In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, learn how indigenous peoples of Virginia resisted erasure and built their identities as Native Americans. Join us at the Library as author Laura J. Feller and Dr. Gregg Kimball, the Library's Director of Public Services and Outreach, discuss Feller’s book Being Indigenous in Jim Crow Virginia: Powhatan People and the Color Line.
Explore the critical strategic work that tidewater Virginia Indians, descendants of the 17th-century Algonquian Powhatan chiefdom, undertook to sustain their Native identity in the face of deep racial hostility from segregationist officials, politicians and institutions.
