Nichelle Calhoun has chased stories of the Black experience internationally and nationally. Perpetual Blackness brings that search back to her roots in the D.C. metro area, where she believes her past and present intersect most poetically. Perpetual Blackness tells the stories of the DMV’s many layers of diasporic Blackness as it parallels Nichelle’s family’s journey over nine generations — from enslavement in rural Virginia to contemporary life in one of the country’s Blackest, bougiest suburbs.

The Pepetual Blackness Blog
Welcome to the Perpetual Blackness blog.
We are all on a journey, and a journey by nature incites reflection. We at AAHA are on the journey with you to learn more about Fauquier County and the dynamic contributions of its citizens and to highlight the voices of those who have not yet been heard. Join us as we share our reflections, interactions with the community and partners and create more context to highlight Fauquier County’s present, past and future!
We welcome you to join us in the process of making sure history includes all of our stories.
Reflect with us.
