Re: “Museum at a Crossroad

it seems curious that the massive overhaul of the physical institution with a massive price tag did not include evaluation of these issues - workforce, national / regional / local marketing, audience accessibility/education/outreach. Where and why was this money spent? Why does this institution need saving?

Re: “LETTER: Instead of Destroying, Try Understanding

I am quite sure that no one is going to forget that the Civil War took place if we remove the statues of the generals and put them in historical context in a museum. Like the rest of history. Currently they are preventing view of the history that has been covered, often literally such as the graves destroyed by I-95 and which were lying under parking lots, airports (Varina) and not even reaching public school curriculum. It is time to acknowledge the injustice, the racism, the upholding of white supremacy, in our past as well as our present. And it does not just exist in our statues but our legal code needs quite a bit of changing and removing to museums as well. Looking forward to hearing and seeing stories with much different narratives from the same time in history and throughout the history of Richmond and VA. We could start with your family's history Mr. Layton.

Re: “Carytown Fresh Market Says No to Food Stamps

Does anyone know what tax breaks Fresh Market receives for setting up a store in Richmond city?
