East Virginia Medical School to reveal results of yearbook investigation

By  | 

NORFOLK, Va. (WWBT) - Eastern Virginia Medical School will hold a press conference Wednesday following an investigation into racist pictures in its yearbook.

The school launched an investigation after a photo on Gov. Ralph Northam’s page in the 1984 yearbook showed one person in blackface and another wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe.

Northam initially seemed to confirm he was in the picture but later disputed his involvement.

The photo led to widespread calls for Northam’s resignation and revelations from other Virginia politicians’ pasts.

President, Provost and Dean of EVMS School of Medicine Richard V. Homan and representatives from McGuireWoods, which conducted the investigation, will speak at the news conference.

The news conference will begin at 10:30 a.m.
