History-Making Supervisor

History-Making Supervisor Jack Junius Green, Jr. (1943-2014) was the first black resident to hold Nottoway County elected office, representing District Three for 26 1/2 years on the Board of Supervisors. Green’s path was a difficult one. He first ran for the Board in 1983, narrowly losing by 35 votes to Peter Harris Fitzgerald.

It Can Happen Here!

This really isn’t an “old” photo. It was taken in Blackstone Seay Park on Christmas night, Dec. 25th, 2010 -- just 10 years ago. That’s when Blackstone enjoyed its last White Christmas. Between four and five inches accumulated here. Prior to 2010, it snowed here on Christmas Day 1993 but didn’t stick, and we received a dusting in the early 1980s (reportedly 1984 but we can’t find any mention of it in our archives).
