February Market Mondays: Descendants of Enslaved Communities at UVA
Dairy Market teamed up with Descendants of Enslaved Communities at UVA for February’s Market Mondays. Market Mondays is Dairy Market’s dine-out-donations program. Each month we partner with a local non-profit and every Monday guests have the opportunity to add $1—or more—to their order with 100% of those proceeds going to our monthly partner. Dairy Market’s Starr Hill Brewery has also teamed up with The Salvation Army as their Cheers for Charity partner for this month where $1 from each pint and 6-pack of The Love beer will be donated.
Descendants of Enslaved Communities at the University of Virginia, is a non-profit organization established in 2020 by the Descendants of enslaved and free Black Virginians that built the University of Virginia. The group is a historic first for Virginia as the first totally independent, self-determined organization of descendants associated with a college or university in the state. Their mission is to research enslaved people associated with UVA, reclaim the narrative, and to honor the legacies of the enslaved and free Black communities and their descendants. They are committed to pursuing restorative justice and their commitment to this mission will not waiver. The Descendants of Enslaved Communities at UVA will serve as the collective voice of all descendants of enslaved and free Black communities who labored at the University of Virginia through research, education, and preservation.
