City of Richmond

Monument Avenue

This weekend team members went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts {VMFA} to take in the Treasures of Ancient Egypt: Sunken Cites exhibit before it leaving in January 2021. While on the way to the gallery they drove thru Richmond’s Monument Avenue, where statues have been removed as part of the ongoing protest against police brutality and racism.

Polls in summer of 2020 estimated that 15 to 26 million people had participated at some point in the demonstrations, making the Black Lives Matter protest the largest in US history. 

Stay safe,
Kathleen
