A conversation with Bertha Armstrong

In celebration of Black History Month, the Economic Development and Tourism Advisory Council has lined up prominent members of the Black and African American community to discuss Fluvanna County. It is a different experience when you hear from those who lived the history.

Our first guest is Bertha Armstrong, who many in the county simply call her Mrs. Armstrong. Bertha was born and raised in Fluvanna. She attended the Dunbar School, a Rosenwald School near the Fork Union and Cohasset communities. At sixth grade she matriculated to SC Abrams, the high school for African Americans. After high school, she's worked in community action agencies for over 50 years and continues to assist the community today.

Bertha discusses her time attending SC Abrams, how she's seen Fluvanna progress over the years, and what Central Elementary and SC Abrams buildings mean to her.
