As the Commonwealth commemorates 400 years of events that define our nation’s history, we discuss the responsibility of museums to tell our history accurately and empathetically. We begin the story with the historic dedication of Arthur Ashe Blvd. The crowd of thousands including dignitaries like iconic Civil Rights leader, Congressman John Lewis, witness the name-change that was twice denied by the former Confederate Capital over the past 2 decades.

Now in 2019, onlookers and former and current city officials celebrate the move toward an inclusive future.
