Outside the Hill: The Valentine’s New Exhibit- Voices from Richmond’s Hidden Epidemic

Howdy neighbors! A few nights ago I was lucky enough to be invited to The Valentine’s public Happy Hour event featuring their newest exhibit, Voices from Richmond’s Hidden Epidemic. This exhibit features the stories and recollections of survivors, caregivers, activists and health care workers out on the front lines during Richmond’s HIV/AIDS crisis.

Above is an excerpt from their website that gives some light on the exhibit
The museum was packed full of people!

The Valentine is a museum that strives to give us the opportunity to discover Richmond’s rich history. Here’s an excerpt taken from their website explaining who they are and what they do!

Here’s a link to this page, for your reading pleasure.

I’m also fortunate to have James Cornell, volunteer and former intern of The Valentine’s Controversy/History program, give me a guided tour of the exhibits! The Valentine is filled to the brim with not only history from Richmond but also from the neighborhoods, such as Church Hill and Shockoe Bottom! For the real good stuff, you’re going to want to visit The Valentine yourself and check out their amazing exhibits!

Here’s James introducing me to their newest Exhibit!
This hallway was pretty busy!

That’s all for now, folks! I’m hoping to write more historic articles and I have a few ideas in mind. Have a good day!
