Voter Registration in Alexandria, Virginia: African-Americans, 1902-1954

Once African-Americans in Alexandria gained the right to vote, they consistently participated in the electoral process. This participation took place within the confines of segregation, a legally sanctioned way of life throughout Virginia. The races could not buy houses in the same neighborhoods, attend the same schools, or use the same libraries. This separation of the races included the voter registration rolls.

A community's list of registered voters links individuals to a time and place. Family historians and genealogists will find these lists a valuable source of information.
