VCU James Branch Cabell Library
901 Park Avenue, Richmond, Virginia
Lecture Hall, 3rd Floor

Ed’s wishes were that, if his family chose to organize a memorial of any kind, “it be made into an occasion of good fellowship, and perhaps a time to reflect upon and make new resolves on questions of advancing the causes of beauty, knowledge and justice”.
With his wishes in mind, we’re going to honor Ed’s life Scalawag-style! Join us for some Celebratin’, Snackin’ and Scalawaggin’ at his beloved VCU Library. Stay for just the service or spend the afternoon with us as we share stories and make a #PeeplesPledge to continue Ed’s work into the future.
