African Americans

Half of the population of Williamsburg in the 18th Century was African American. This gallery represents just a small part of Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s efforts to tell their stories. For more than 40 years this representation has and continues to grow. Their contributions to the American Character, shown in this gallery, are undeniable.
