Virginia's Gov Northam Announces Launch of New African American History Course;

RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today announced that students in 16 Virginia school divisions will be able to increase their understanding of African American history by participating in a new high school-level elective course this academic year.

[link:https://bluevirginia.us/2020/08/governor-northam-announces-launch-of-new-african-american-history-course|

Fauquier County, where I reside, is not included and this course should be a required high school curriculum.
