Please note – In accordance with calls from state and city leadership to postpone public gatherings, all Valentine public programs and events are currently cancelled. The April launch of the 2020 Richmond History Tours season will be postponed. A new launch date will be updated here once it is determined. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to continuing the serve the region through our educational public programs.
Explore the diversity of one of Richmond’s most vibrant neighborhoods. During our walk we’ll visit murals, revitalized buildings and historic homes to learn more about a neighborhood that has experienced numerous incarnations. As we trace its evolution from immigrant working-class neighborhood, to the “Harlem of the South” and a modern community today, we’ll explore how art is telling the story of Jackson Ward.
