The addition of approximately 300 entries to the online "Encyclopedia Virginia," covering topics and biographies related to Virginia's African American history from 1862 to 1902.

"Encyclopedia Virginia," a project of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, in partnership with the Dictionary of Virginia Biography, a project of the Library of Virginia, seeks support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create more than 300 entries and a comparable number of transcribed primary sources for the encyclopedia's newest section, Freedom to Disfranchisement: The African American Experience in Virginia, 1861 to 1902, which traces the story of African Americans in Virginia from the ending of slavery and the beginnings of freedom and citizenship to the legislated 1902 reversal of those civil rights.
