Revolutions make history — but it’s often the art born from them that makes them memorable.  Think of how the peace sign became a symbol of the 1960s and anti-war protests. The "I Am a Man" placards are synonymous with the 1968 sanitation workers’ march in Memphis, Tennessee. Banners of "To Ask Freedom for Women is Not a Crime" equate to women’s suffrage.  Today’s protest posters of "I Can’t Breathe" and "Black Lives Matter" will be the emblems used in history textbooks yet to be written. Not only does protest art lend a voice to a movement, it also sometimes becomes the only voice when people can’t find the vocabulary to express the motley of emotions they feel.  That’s what led Kayce White of Norfolk to start the "Sanctuary for Change — A Healing and Action Wall" at the Weyanoke Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary in Norfolk. White began it soon after local protests began over the death of George Floyd, an African American man who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer.  Read more in this Sunday's Break.

No one knows how many skeletons are under St. Mary’s in Norfolk, or why the 162-year-old Catholic church was built right on top of a cemetery.  But when David Givens, Jamestown’s head archaeologist, recently rolled a ground penetrating radar over the sanctuary’s concrete floor, he detected void after void.  Graves, he said, "are everywhere under here."  Church legend has long whispered of such things.

Confirmation came last fall when contractors removed part of the floor to install sewer lines for new bathrooms and found the faint borders of a brick crypt.

Then a skull — or at least part of one — turned up in a utility line hole cut near the altar.  Renovations screeched to a halt.  Now, the congregation of the Basilica of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception just wants to know who’s under there.

  • Norfolk has long kept secret how police use force. Now some council members want that to change.
  • Virginia Beach’s proposed hybrid school plan is problematic.
