Desegregation: Stories of Integration of Henrico Public Schools
The Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s brought seismic change to American society. Perhaps the greatest impact was felt in education. The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1954 decision in Brown vs. the Board of Education ordered that racial segregation in schools gave unequal treatment to blacks and whites, and was unconstitutional. The decision meant school systems would have to integrate. In Henrico County, the process of school desegregation occurred gradually from 1963 to 1969. Join HCTV as we hear the stories and learn the history of this revolution in education.

Westwood Community, The: Built on Faith and Resilience
In the near West End of Richmond — not far from the bustle of Willow Lawn — stands a community that speaks to the power of unity, determination and perseverance. The village of Westwood was established by former slaves in the late 19th century in what was then a remote, rural part of Henrico County. Over decades, the community grew to include dozens of humble homes as well as stores, a church and a school. But the community found itself drawn into a fight for its own survival. Facing seemingly impossible odds, the families held firm and discovered just how resilient their village could be.

For Family and Community: The Life of William Leroy Vandervall
William Vandervall was born in Richmond in 1860 to free black parents Leroy P. and Rebecca Vandervall. After the Civil War, the family saw opportunities beyond Richmond, and settled in an area of western Henrico known as Rio Vista. The family’s commitment to education proved profound. William advocated for educational equality for black students, worked as a teacher for 20 years and was the first African-American mail carrier in the area. His family’s land was used for a church and two schools located on Quioccasin Road. Vandervall died on October 10th, 1934, at age 74. He left a legacy of service to his community and to Henrico County.

Vote Here! Virginia’s History of Voting and Elections
For more than two centuries, Virginia’s electorate has expanded and become more representative of its people — though not without struggle. Much like the voting ranks have changed over time, so has the process. Changes brought by the Voting Rights Act and other measures inspired by the Civil Rights Movement reverberated throughout the Commonwealth. The unfettered right to vote is available to more Virginians today than at any point in the state’s history. That right is not always exercised, however. Join HCTV as we explore the history of voting and the evolution of elections in Virginia.
