  2. Novella Auls and WAC Battalion 6888

    March 21, 2018, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    In this first presentation in partnership with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Dr. Margaret Bristow shares the story of the first and only black battalion of the Women's Army Corps (WAC) stationed in Birmingham, England, during WW II. Of special focus is Sergeant Novella Auls of Hampton, one of the members of Battalion 6888. These WACs sorted through 3 million pieces of mail for servicemen in England and France and helped rebuild the morale of WW II active duty men. These women served under the first commissioned black woman in WAC history — Major Charity Adams. To bring these brave women to life, Dr. Bristow shares several WAC songs and highlights Novella Auls in a short dramatic reenactment.

  3. **Sold Out!** Poisoned Dwarf

    March 21, 2018, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    **Event Sold Out!** Keep the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day going with the region’s best traditional Irish and Celtic band. Poisoned Dwarf plays driving traditional Celtic music, and for them, the tunes matter most. Focusing primarily on Irish traditional music, and with acoustic instruments only, this band from Williamsburg, Virginia has entertained audiences in many different settings for years. The Irish flute, whistle, guitar, Scottish Small-Pipes, banjo, a variety of percussion instruments (including bones and bodhran), accordion, and of course fiddle are all brought to the dance for Poisoned Dwarf performances. Their love for the music and the playing of it is always obvious from the first note, so while listening to and seeing Poisoned Dwarf’s melting of one tune after another, you’ll dance. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

    Join us for a special Sunday Cruise that includes a picnic. This month we will begin at Sandy Bottom Nature Park and ride through the Northampton area. (We will not be riding on the park trails.) The riding route does require crossing a pedestrian overpass bridge, and dependent upon group size, we may dismount from our bicycles. For any runners and walkers looking to join in the fun, we also have someone leading a 2-mile jog/run. As with the bike cruise, this will be friendly to beginners. (This jog/run will be through the park trails.) When we return, join us for a (bring your own) picnic at the Lakeside Shelter. If you have other friends or family that want to join for just the picnic, they are welcome. The more, the merrier!
