The Library of Virginia, with support from Capital One, is pleased to honor eight distinguished Virginians as African American Trailblazers for their contributions to the state and nation. Through education, advocacy, entertainment, or armed rebellion, these individuals demonstrate how African Americans have actively campaigned for better lives for themselves and their people.
The honorees are Dangerfield Newby, Evelyn Butts, Amaza Meredith, Claudia Whitworth, Oliver White Hill, John Cephas, Edna Lewis, and Leland Melvin. Find out more about each trailblazer by visiting the Library of Virginia web site.

Artist's Statement: Much of my love of the visual arts came about as a result of being legally blind for the first 13-years of life. Once I was able to see God's world clearly, I was imbued with a sense of awe I have never gotten over. We really do live on a beautiful planet, and I try to capture that beauty and sense of God's love for us in my art.
View the library's annual Teen Art Show, co-sponsored by It! Magazine, through June 29, in the Headquarters Atrium Gallery. The show is open to students in grades 9-12, who live in the city of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford or Westmoreland counties.
