Four workshops on the history of Petersburg, aimed at developing a model for teaching local history in a global context.

VIrginia State University proposes a collaborative effort between University faculty and staff, community leaders in the City of Petersburg, the Governor's School and outside scholars to develop a program on Race and the African American History in the Context of the Atlantic World - Case Study Petersburg, VA.
