The AAHA is currently involved in a number of projects designed to explore and preserve our local African American history.
An oral history project possible through a grant from the PATH foundation, Listen, the Community Speaks collects the memories and perceptions of African Americans who grew up in our local black communities.
AAHA hosts annual events to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Black History Month, as well as others throughout the year. See the events tab for details.
AAHA staff and volunteers research and document people, places and events that have been important in Fauquier County history.
Nichelle Calhoun conceived of and developed the Perpetual Blackness Podcast, with the help of a PATH Foundation grant. Perpetual Blackness, tells the story of how one world traveler discovered “home” in Fauquier County.
Nichelle interviews Black men and women from all over the Virginia, DC and Maryland area, telling their stories through the podcast.
