The Historic Ashburn Colored School (HACS) will host an event about the history of segregated education in Virginia at Loudoun School for Advanced Studies (LSAS) from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on February 29.

Phyllis J. Randall, Chair of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, will offer opening remarks at the LSAS’s new facility at 20577 Ashburn Road, Ashburn. Wendi Manuel Scott, Professor of History at George Mason University, will address the complex and enduring context of the HACS in her keynote address. A panel of local historians will follow to provide diverse perspectives on HACS, past and present. Other speakers will include former HACS students, educators, and local leaders.

Visitors will be invited to tour the Historic Ashburn Colored School following the presentations. (Note: The historic school is not wheelchair-accessible.)
