The Lyceum

Alexandria, VA 22314

Join us at the Alexandria History Museum at the Lyceum for a one-day conference to provide networking opportunities and tools to help build capacity and strengthen organizations preserving African American historic sites in Virginia.

Building on the success of past programs focused on advocating for African American historic resources, including schools (Rosenwald-funded and otherwise) and cemeteries, this one-day conference will provide attendees with advocacy, documentation and funding tools with time built in for collaboration and networking.

Parking information: A limited number of handicap parking spaces are available at the Lyceum parking lot. For all other attendees the Courthouse Square Parking Garage, located at 228 S. Washington Street, is the closest (2-minute walk) parking option. The Alexandria Amtrak Station and the King Street Metro Station are 1 mile from the Lyceum. City of Alexandria parking map.  

General admission is $60 (coffee and lunch included).
