Front Cover

University of Virginia Press, 1995 - Architecture - 201 pages
The sixty-four sites described in this book are a testament to the contribution that Afro-Americans have made to Virginia history over the last four centuries. The buildings they constructed, the churches in which they worshiped, and the schools in which they studied preserve the story of these contributions in visible and often dramatic ways. These sites have been designated by both the state and national historical registers as worthy of preservation.
