    The African-American Experience During the Civil War with Audrey Davis Talk @ Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association @ the Athenaeum

    In celebration of Black History Month, Audrey Davis, the Executive Director of the Alexandria Black History Museum, will lead a conversation on the African-American experience during the Civil War. The lives of Contabrands in occupied Alexandria, how they worked, survived and succeeded in moving towards freedom will be discovered. As the only Alexandrian that consulted in the hit PBS mini-series Mercy Street, she will lend insight into the making of the show.
