On Saturday, February 28, 2009, the community was invited to attend a conference about Richmond’s African American history, “Hidden Things Brought to Light: Finding Lumpkin’s Jail and Locating the Burial Ground for Negroes.” Sponsored by the Virginia Historical Society, the City of Richmond Slave Trail Commission, and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, the half-day conference presented recent scholarship on two downtown Richmond historical sites — the Burial Ground for Negroes and Lumpkin’s Slave Jail — both of which have special importance for the history of African Americans in Virginia.
