  1. 400th Commemoration Art Exhibit featuring artist Ted Ellis

    February 14, 2020, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Goode Theatre

    Mr. Ted T. Ellis is an artist and cultural historian, and he currently serves as the Vice Chair of the national 400 Years of African American History Commission. For more than 25 years, Ellis has created over 5,000 paintings that capture scenes from southern churches, courtrooms, families, and everyday life of African Americas' 400-year journey. Developed exclusively for viewing at Old Dominion University, this exhibition features more than 20 original pieces that speak to the totality of African American experiences and contributions from the past to the present. Visitors will be among the first to view "The First Royal Family," a newly unveiled work that captures the Tucker Family Cemetery, burial site of William Tucker, the first documented person born in the English colonies to Africans who landed under bondage in Port Comfort (now known as Fort Monroe) in 1619.
