Back to all Events


Prolyfyck Run Crew and the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center are partnering to present this year’s Liberation + Freedom Day Run/Walk.  We are raising funds to support 101.3 JAMZ, African American Teaching Fellows, Albemarle-Charlottesville NAACP’s Youth Council Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, Prolyfyck Run Crew, Tonsler League and Vinegar Hill Magazine‘s Black Business advertising fund. These organizations all have Black leadership and support the community directly. The near 8 mile run and 4 mile walk allows you to engage with some of the City’s important sites of African American history, while passing some of the African American businesses along the way.

About Liberation and Freedom Day:

Liberation and Freedom Day is a municipal holiday in Charlottesville celebrated on March 3, to commemorate the day in 1865 when Union Major General Phillip Sheridan and his troops arrived in Charlottesville – liberating over 14,000 enslaved people.
