  3. The Blind Boys of Alabama

    February 17, 2018, 8:00 PM @ The American Theatre

    If there’s one word to describe The Blind Boys of Alabama, it’s legendary. The original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the 1930s and have flourished over the decades. Their unique sound blends the close harmonies of early jubilee gospel with the more fervent improvisations of hard gospel. Today, the Grammy Award-winning group draws from a variety of musical genres, including music by Tom Waits and the Rolling Stones. This live show will be a roof-raising musical event that appeals to audiences of all cultures. The Blind Boys of Alabama have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 75 years and shows no signs of diminishing.

  2. Give Me Liberty: Fugitive Slaves and the Long Revolution Against Slavery

    February 25, 2017, 10:00 AM - February 25, 2018, 5:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum - Changing Gallery

    The groundbreaking exhibition explores the lives of over 30 fugitive slaves from Hampton who made journeys to freedom or took up arms against their enslavers during periods of war. This exhibit shines an inspirational light on their experiences in the context of slave resistance between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The exhibit especially focuses on the Black Loyalists (American Revolution) and Refugees (War of 1812) in Hampton who achieved liberty by joining forces with the British Army and Navy. Between these wartime events enslaved people in Hampton continuously resisted by taking flight. Through their revolutionary actions, fugitives not only freed themselves but fought against enslavement, ultimately helping to end slavery permanently. The exhibition concludes with Hampton’s Contrabands, who escaped to Union-held Fort Monroe during the Civil War, and the role they and other fugitives played in slavery’s abolition.

  1. When the Computer Wore a Skirt: NASA's Human Computers

    January 21, 2017, 10:00 AM - June 1, 2018, 5:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    In 1935 a group of five women came to Langley to form a computer pool to process all the data coming in from wind tunnel and flight tests. It began as an experiment, but became something much bigger. By 1942, the human computers had become essential to operations. A memo that April stated: "The engineers admit themselves that the girl computers do the work more rapidly and accurately than they could." In the 1940’s Langley also began recruiting African-American women as human computers, but due to segregation laws these "West Area Computers" were kept separate from their white counterparts. This changed in the 1950s as NACA (later NASA) integrated and the “human computers” extended into the broader scientific community at NASA. By the 1960s they numbered in the hundreds. This exhibit features three of these pioneers: Dorothy Vaughan, Katherine Johnson, and Hampton native-Mary Jackson.
