Exhibit reflects on 2017 torch march and rally
RICHMOND, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A new exhibit is marking the fifth anniversary of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
The Virginia Holocaust Museum says the There's Just Us exhibit is now on display through the end of the year.
Alec R. Hosterman, a photographer and associated professor at Longwood University, was in Charlottesville during the events of August 2017 to document them.
According to a release, the exhibit represented the clashes Hosterman saw when communities fight hate and bigotry as well as the collective voices brave enough to stand up against them.
“The Virginia Holocaust Museum was honored to host this exhibit in 2018 for the one-year anniversary and it’s a privilege to host this powerful retrospective again in 2022,” said Samuel Asher, the executive director of the VHM. “It aims to remind us that the struggle for diversity and inclusion in our communities still continues, but we are never alone. Together, we can remember those voices who were silenced all too soon and resolve to make this world a better place to live.”
The display will be available at the museum until Dec. 30.
