Alexandria Black History Museum’s New Online Exhibition “Preserving Their Names — The Legacy of George Floyd: Documenting Alexandria’s Response”

Although the Alexandria Black History Museum currently remains closed, your can view a new online only exhibition Preserving Their Names — the Legacy of George Floyd.   This explores some of the local response to George Floyd’s murder one year ago.  It features digital images of objects and photographs from ABHM’s new Black Lives Remembered Collection.
  • The Black Lives Remembered Collection includes historic and future artifacts relating to the story of Black lives lost to racial terror violence and their remembrance.  You can see a stunning digital photograph taken by Daniel Horowitz in April 2021, showing the George Washington Masonic National Memorial illuminated in purple memorializing the lynching death of Joseph McCoy in 1897. The image is a reminder that Black lives have been lost throughout history to acts of racial terror violence, and that it is imperative as a community to acknowledge this history.
  • You may also submit comments and images of possible donations of objects or photographs to the collection via the online collecting initiative form available on our website at alexandriava.gov/115798. You can also volunteer to take part in an oral history interview conducted by Office of Historic Alexandria staff using the same form.
