Civic Dialogs - Hampton’s Civil Rights Movement in Historical Perspective

Monday, February 13, 2017

This will seek to engage the public’s perceptions and experiences of the local movement over time. What did it mean in the 1960s to local residents? And how did it change over subsequent decades? What, in fact, do we know about it now, how do we remember it, and how does it inspire our actions?

 It will also put in perspective the local movement’s relation to the larger sit-movement throughout the state and region by inviting other citizens working on or with knowledge about similar community projects such as those in Danville and Richmond. This program has been funded in part by a grant from Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.
