On Friday, January 26th at 5:30pm, the Wadada Leo Smith Art Exhibit will be having an opening reception at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Built in 1926, the Jefferson School was Charlottesville’s first African American high school, and for decades it stood as a beacon within the black community. Students and families gathered to attend plays and meetings, use the library, and learn from teachers who seemed like family. Today the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center celebrates Charlottesville’s rich African American history and culture with historical and contemporary exhibitions as well as special events.. The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Jefferson School City Center. Its main entrance is on Commerce St, one-block north of West Main Street. It can also be entered from the City Center’s 4th Street entrance.
