  1. See if you can get the slides or a link to the slides… the video is not very good quality…hard to see and understand.. but I can tell the content is substantiative.

    • Although Facebook Live does have its limitations regarding quality, I wanted you all to know that the Virginia Historical Society posts higher-quality videos of all our Banner Lectures on our website within two weeks of the lecture. You can find them at Thank you for your interest in this program. Augie’s presentation (and book) really raise awareness of the remarkable disparity between the two Virginias.
