Slavery Museum Needed Here

Mr. Mayor: Sir, please be advised that my comments re: your speech at Virginia Commonwealth University were taken out of context ("Mayor Salutes VCU Prof, Pitches Slavery Museum," Street Talk, Sept. 13).

My point was simply that you had taken the opportunity to acknowledge Herb Hirsch's great work and in doing so to remind us that we, as a society, need remember our historical faults.

We indeed do need a slavery museum placed here in Richmond. If I may be of assistance, please call.
