Richmond Region Tourism Launches BLK RVA

Yesterday Richmond Region Tourism introduced BLK RVA, their latest campaign to highlight and celebrate the Black culture experience in Richmond, Va.

BLK RVA is a collaborative initiative between Richmond Region Tourism (RRT) and 20+ community leaders. It promotes African American tourism by illustrating the Richmond region as a multicultural hub that specializes in four pillars: Arts & Entertainment, Food & Drink, Community, and History. Through this initiative, we’re setting out to increase tourism, engage regional residents, and support businesses by showcasing spaces that highlight the Black experience in the Richmond region. Black culture in Richmond is rooted in history, yet rising in its future.

With BLK RVA you can connect with your past, celebrate the present, and look towards a future that’s filled with Black excellence.

Please contact me about a play to be presented at Hanover Tavern just north of Richmond that would be an excellent venue for groups wanting to know more about the experiences of an enslaved woman who escaped to freedom in 1862. She escaped with six children, including an infant, to Fortress Monroe. The daring escape was just the beginning of her story that has gained national recognition.
