We are the authors of the new book “African Americans of Alexandria, Virginia: Beacons of Light in the Twentieth Century.” We came together to nominate outstanding African Americans who made a difference in Alexandria, Virginia, to be recognized in the Charles Houston Recreation Center’s rooms. As we learned more about the nominees, we decided their story should be told to a larger audience. If you want to learn more about these outstanding African Americans, please order our book from the following places:
If you are in Alexandria, Virginia, you can visit the Alexandria Black History Museum at 902 Wythe Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 – (703-746-4356), to get a copy of the book and possibly meet one of the authors.
