About the Black History Committee

The Black History Committee was created to showcase the rich legacy of African American contributions to Loudoun County

African Americans, one of the largest of the many ethnic groups in the United States are mainly of African ancestry, but many have non-Black ancestors as well.

African Americans are largely the descendants of enslaved people who were brought from their African homelands by force to work in the New World. Their rights were severely limited, and they were long denied a rightful share in the economic, social, and political progress of the United States. Nevertheless, African Americans have made basic and lasting contributions to American history and culture throughout our world and here in Loudoun County, Virginia.

“Here, before God, in the presence of these witnesses, from time to time, I consecrate my life to the destruction of slavery!”

- John Brown
