We Have a Dream 

A look through the print and pictures of the time, even in exhibits like our Valentine Richmond History Center's latest, "The Business of Segregation," would probably surprise anyone interested in the struggle. Here, we get a glimpse of the many sometimes forgotten players who did a lot more than listen to speeches, hold hands and sing. In this photography exhibit, guest curator Jacqueline Mullins explores segregation in Richmond daily life, in the places where African-Americans shopped, worked and relaxed. These scenes give us a better sense of the daily African-American experience in Richmond, mainly in the downtown department stores during segregation, and during the protests to desegregate them. On view through April 27. — wayne
