Capstone Explores Richmond's History and Impact of the James River
As part of their ongoing research for a senior Capstone class The River City, a group of 12th Graders met with two James River advocates yesterday to learn about Richmond's history and the impact of the river on the city's evolution.
Ralph White, former director of the James River Park System, and Rev. Ben Campbell, author of "Richmond's Unhealed History," shared their expertise and answered students' questions regarding their research.
The recorded interviews will guide the students' projects in the coming weeks and will provide invaluable insight into how we became the Richmond we know today.
