New Virginians: 1619–2019 & Beyond, an exhibition from the Library of Virginia explores the historical and continuous journey toward the ideals of America and intends to foster an honest and serious discussion about diversity and the challenges of blended cultures. Produced jointly by the Library of Virginia and Virginia Humanities—with support from American Evolution, 2019 Commemoration—the exhibition highlights the changing demographics of the commonwealth on the eve of the 2020 federal census through a series of interviews with first-generation immigrants and refugees who arrived in Virginia after 1976.
