17th Annual Gabriel Forum at the African Burial Ground
For the 17th year in a row, the SACRED GROUND HISTORICAL RECLAMATION PROJECT will host a GABRIEL FORUM at Richmond's African Burial Ground to mark the day in 1800 that the great slave rebellion leader Gabriel was executed here for the crime of leading a rebellion for Freedom, Justice and Equality. This year's gathering will be especially important as the City moves to finalize its plans for Shockoe Bottom.
Volunteering with our CTTT-RVA is a wonderful opportunity to get involved and connect with others. The work you contribute is always valued as we strive to pursue our mission of a just and truthful society that acknowledges and seeks to heal from the racial wounds of the past.
