Vivian Feggans, the founder of The Literary Collective Of Black Women In Charlottesville, and Diane Townes, a member of The Literary Collective Of Black Women In Charlottesville, joined me live on The I Love CVille Show!

We discussed the following on the show:
1. The positive impact The Literary Collective Of Black Women is having in Charlottesville.
2. Charlottesville’s history of racism, including August 11 and August 12.
3. The evolution of the Charlottesville school system, including its “gifted” or advanced placement program, which has historically catered to white students more than black students.
4. Gentrification in CVille and how is it transforming and eradicating historically black neighborhoods around town.
5. The ramifications from Vinegar Hill and how this destruction negatively impacted generations of black families in CVille.
6. The importance of changing the curriculum in schools to embody a more diverse and well-rounded education.

The I Love CVille show airs Monday – Friday from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm on The I Love CVille Network!
