POWERFUL PHOTOS FOR A POWERFUL SITE
Earlier this spring, under the supervision of UVA history professor John Edwin Mason, portraits of African Americans in Charlottesville taken by Rufus Holsinger in the later 1800s and early 1900s were installed around the construction site that will become UVA’s Memorial to Enslaved Laborers.
Some of them show the men and women who were born into slavery and worked at the University — the very peo-ple being honored at that site. All of them were taken at the height of the Jim Crow era in Charlottesville and the South.
