BayShore at Buckroe Beach

Saturday, September 22, 2018

Event organizer Reginald Robinson presents the 4th Annual Bayshore at Buckore Beach event, celebrating the 120th anniversary of the “Vacation Paradise of the South,” a special evening with nostalgic displays of memorabilia and plenty of memories of Bayshore Beach, once the premier resort for African-Americans to relax on the Chesapeake Bay during Jim Crow segregation, at the Hampton History Museum. Cake and ice cream will be served. There will be an oyster and clam shucking demonstration with hot sauce available for those wanting to sample. Four special guest speakers will share their personal stories of time at Bayshore. Scheduled to appear are Gwen Watts and Glennie Daniels from Richmond, Va.; Darryl Randolph, Hampton Institute class of 1961; and Dr. Mary T. Christian from Hampton Va. Everyone entering the museum will receive a ticket, while tickets last, for a chance to win an autographed guitar by Chuck Guitar Chavis and Ves Artist. Winner must be present to win.
