Richmond Remembers VSU Alums

Virginia State University was founded in 1882 as Virginia Normal and Collegiate Institute. Later known as Virginia State College, VSU was the United States’ first fully state-supported four-year institution of higher learning for black Americans. Located south of Richmond on the Appomattox River near Petersburg, VSU boasts notable alumni including U.S. ambassador Pamela E. Bridgewater, actor James Avery, artist and museum founder Thomas Miller, jazz musician Billy Taylor, and many more. Richmond remembers Trojans past and present who have called Virginia State home. #RichmondRemembersVSU
