Virginia NAACP Affirms the Importance of Teaching African American History and Antiracist Education in Virginia’s Public Schools

RICHMOND – Today, the Virginia State Conference NAACP affirmed its full support for the adoption of Virginia’s African American History and Social Science Curriculum implementing recommendations from Governor Ralph Northam’s Commission on African American History Education in the Commonwealth

Virginia NAACP leaders also applauded public school educators who are teaching history in its entirety, including the experiences of Black people in Virginia, and our nation. 

Virginia NAACP President Robert N. Barnette, Jr., said: “Virginia students must learn about the complex and often untold history of Black Americans in Virginia, and our nation. The Virginia NAACP expects that all public school districts across the state will follow the History and Social Studies Standards of Learning and Curriculum Framework Revision, as approved by the Board of Education.”

Virginia NAACP Education Chair Dr. Amy Tillerson-Brown said: “We expect that in complying with the state’s SOL curriculum, that superintendents and school administrators will stand behind and support their teachers who are teaching from this curriculum, about Black experiences, or from an anti-racist framework, and do everything in their power to protect teachers from all forms of harassment, retaliation, or retribution from administrators, peers, parents, school board members, or members of the public.”

ABOUT THE VIRGINIA NAACP

Founded in 1935, the Virginia State Conference of NAACP Branches (Virginia NAACP) is the oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization in the Commonwealth, overseeing over 100 NAACP branches, youth councils, and college chapters. The Virginia NAACP is focused on being the preeminent voice of Black Virginians and advocating for policies and programs to benefit Blacks and people of color.

Virginia NAACP Applauds Efforts to Achieve Universal Broadband by 2024; Reaffirms Repeated Request to Fully-Fund Virginia’s HBCUs

RICHMOND – Virginia State Conference NAACP President Robert N. Barnette, Jr. issued the following statement following last week’s announcement by Governor Ralph Northam outlining his plan to invest $700 million in American Rescue Plan funding to expedite the deployment of last-mile broadband infrastructure to unserved areas and close the digital divide within the next three years:

“The Virginia NAACP looks forward to universal broadband becoming a reality for the Commonwealth by 2024. 

While we applaud the governor’s announcement, we reaffirm our repeated request of Governor Northam and the legislature to ensure that Virginia responsibly uses funds from the American Rescue Plan to drastically invest in infrastructure, programs, and scholarships at Virginia’s five Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

The Virginia NAACP and our more than 100 branches, youth councils and college chapters pledge to advocate with unprecedented vigor alongside Virginia’s HBCU leaders to demand that this one-time federal funding is used to make historic, once-in-a-lifetime investments in Virginia’s HBCUs.”

There are five Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the Commonwealth of Virginia: Virginia Union University (1865), Hampton University (1868), Virginia State University (1882), Virginia University of Lynchburg (1886) and Norfolk State University (1935).

VA. GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO CONVENE AUGUST 2

Subject: Governor Northam Announces General Assembly to Convene August 2

Commonwealth of VirginiaOffice of Governor Ralph S. Northam
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ·
June 23, 2021  
Office of the GovernorAlena.Yarmosky@governor.virginia.gov
Governor Northam Announces General Assembly to Convene
August 2
~ Special session to address state budget, including the allocation of federal relief funding ~
RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today issued a proclamation
calling the members of the General Assembly into special session on
Monday, August 2. A special session is necessary to fill judicial vacancies and allocate more than $4.3 billion in federal relief funding.  “With more Virginians getting vaccinated every day, we are turning the corner and
building back stronger,” said Governor Northam. “Thanks to the
American Rescue Plan, we have a unique opportunity to fund public
schools, support small businesses, achieve universal broadband access,
and make generational investments in our shared future. I look forward
to working with legislators to get it done.” Earlier this summer, Governor Northam and legislative leaders issued a joint statement outlining their
shared priorities for this federal funding: 
Public health. 
Upgrade long-underfunded state and local public health services, boost
affordable housing, and help Virginians with the cost of utilities.
 Small businesses.
Fully fund the Rebuild Virginia economic recovery program, invest in
Virginia Tourism’s work to recruit visitors back to the Commonwealth,
and help the Department Housing and Community Development support Virginia’s main streets, small towns, and industrial revitalization.  
Workers.
Fund the Unemployment Trust Fund to support workers who lose their
jobs and avoid increased costs on Virginia businesses, increase support
for the Virginia Employment Commission—historically one of the lowest-funded unemployment systems in the country—to continue upgrading its computer systems and hire necessary staff. 
Public schools. 
Modernize public school buildings across Virginia by rehabilitating and
upgrading existing facilities, improving air quality and HVAC systems,
and improving safety. 
Broadband. 
Accelerate a 10-year plan to ensure universal broadband access within
the next 18 months. President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 into law in March, directing $350 billion in economic recovery
funding for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments. All
Republican members of Congress voted against the law, including those
representing Virginia. The full text of Governor Northam’s proclamation is available hereFull Release
