Thank you to everyone who was able to join us 04/27/23, as we welcomed 6 members of the Norfolk 17, and several of the Lost Class of 1959, together with many family members and friends, for a time of fellowship, reflection and celebration at the dedication of our newest public art installation, “End of Massive Resistance” by RE:site Studio.
Nicole Livas, anchor and reporter for 13News Now welcomed the crowd with opening remarks and acknowledgements. Special guest speakers included Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander; Former Superintendent of Norfolk Public Schools, Dr. John Simpson; Artist Norman Lee of RE:site; and Former Councilman, Paul Riddick.
Guests enjoyed steel drum music by Gary “JuJu” Garlic, an Arts For Learning Artist, throughout the day.
