Celebrating 150th anniversary of Jackson Ward

Hundreds of people gathered in Jackson Ward last Saturday for “Illuminating Legacies: Giles B. Jackson Day,” the kickoff of The JXN Project’s celebration commemorating the 150th anniversary of Jackson Ward. Known as the “Black Wall Street,” Jackson Ward was a thriving center for Black commerce, entertainment and life in Richmond following the Civil War.
