History Walk of Jackson Ward Murals


Following the success of Hadassah Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom history walk, Arlene Wiener will lead another walking tour of the Jackson Ward murals on Sunday, July 17 starting at 9 a.m., at 205 E. Marshall St.

This is the site of the first mural by Aniekan (pictured here). The walk will conclude at either Perly’s or Stella’s Grocery. This is a rescheduled of the June 12 walk that was postponed due to inclement weather.

On the walk, we will explore the diversity of one of city’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Murals are on revitalized buildings and historic homes and depict the neighborhood’s rich history, as we trace its evolution from immigrant working-class neighborhood to the “Harlem of the South” and a modern community today. We will explore how art is telling the story of Jackson Ward.

The walk is open to anyone interested – women and men, and you do not need to be a Hadassah member. Further details will be listed in Hadassah Happenings. For more information contact Arlene at arlenewiener@comcast.net.  To register, visit: https://hadassahhub.wufoo.com/forms/m1e3wydt1wk7cs1/
