The Clermont Foundation hosted a reception for Kyle Ainsworth on the acceptance of his master’s thesis (“Restoration, Resistance, and Reconstruction; Liberty at Last in Clarke County, Virginia 1865-1879”) regarding a large free black community founded in 1870 on Clermont Farm land and its relationship to Reconstruction and the re-establishment of white supremacy in Clarke County.
