Celebrating the Legacy of Douglas L. Wilder

The Wilder Anniversary Committee will commemorate the election of the nation's first popularly elected African-American governor with an educational symposium followed by a formal gala. Wilder, who blazed the trail well before his election as Virginia’s 66th Governor—becoming the first African-American legislator to serve in the State Senate since Reconstruction in 1969 and the first African-American lieutenant governor of the commonwealth in 1985 will be honored.

The Wilder Anniversary Gala will be held from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Richmond Marriott located at 500 E. Broad Street.
