Va. Governor Set to Launch Apology Tour at HBCU

Beleaguered Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has selected Virginia Union University in Richmond as the first stop on his “reconciliation tour,” set to begin Feb. 21.

Northam, who has stood firm against calls for his resignation over a racist photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page, will attend the “Faith, Identity and Social Justice” event at 11 a.m. at the campus’s Allix B. James Chapel in Coburn Hall. The event is open to the public.

It is unclear whether Northam will speak.

The historically Black university called the event part of “the conversation regarding a path to move forward” and said that it’s important “to begin to develop a plan to reach healing and reconciliation.”
