aka Albemarle County Historical Society   |   Charlottesville, VA   |  albemarlehistory.org

Mission

History is not the past; it is the story we tell about the past. Every person in Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville has a unique and powerful story to tell. Through collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of our community, we are committed to informing, inspiring, and bringing together all people, creating opportunities for new relationships and new understandings.

Notes from the nonprofit

We, the Board of Directors of the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, are resolutely committed to the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe the Society has a moral obligation to do its part to address past and current injustices to groups that have been historically disadvantaged and socially, politically, and economically excluded. Our commitment is shaped by our values, our work, and the traditions of the Society in its endeavor to promote an appreciation of local history so that the past may shed light on the present and the future.

We define diversity as including, but not limited to, individual and group differences based on race, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation, class, religious or personal belief, and physical ability. Creating a genuinely inclusive environment and ensuring that diverse voices are present and active in all aspects of our institutional life will enhance our organization's effectiveness.
