Black History Month speaker displays slave chains
Richard Stewart, Army veteran, Defense Supply Center Richmond, Virginia retiree, and owner and orator of Pocahontas Island Black History Museum, shows slave shackles and chains that were pulled from the Appomattox River. These devices were used to bind Virginia slaves during that part of our nation’s history. Stewart served as the keynote speaker during the Black History Month Observance held at DSCR Feb. 25, 2016.
