Visiting Exhibit: There’s Just Us
July 18 – December 30, 2022
August 11 and 12, 2022, marks the five-year anniversary of the Unite the Right rally that shook the quiet, central Virginia city of Charlottesville. The Virginia Holocaust Museum is honored and privileged to exhibit There’s Just Us, a photo series by Alec R. Hosterman who was there to document the protests over that weekend.
There’s Just Us represents the struggle Hosterman saw when communities fight hate and bigotry; of the collective voices that were brave enough to stand up against all odds. It aims to remind us that we are never alone in the struggle for diversity and inclusion. Together, we can remember those voices who were silenced all too soon and make this world a better place to live.
