[ARCHIVED] Special Exhibit! - Success Through Unity: The Bethel High School Story

SQUARE img074

In conjunction with the Bethel High School Mega Reunion 1970-1992, explore photographs, mementos, uniforms and other items, to tell the story of this  illustrious institution. While other Hampton schools were becoming fully integrated, Bethel High School, opened in 1968, was integrated from its inception. Bethel can be seen as a microcosm of the success of Hampton’s desegregation, which was not the result of heavy enforcement from above, but rather of people working together. This exhibit highlights some of the faculty and student athletes that emerged from this environment. Weekend access may be impeded by events taking place in the museum. This exhibit is made possible by a “Love Your City” grant and the Downtown Hampton Development Partnership.
