Hampton University Review

Hampton University was founded in 1868 as a freedmen's school, and ever since has had a distinguished history as an institution of higher education for African-Americans. Booker T. Washington was an early graduate. The Hampton University Museum, on the riverfront campus, is notable for its extensive and diverse collection, which includes more than 11,000 African, Native American, Pacific Island, and Asian art objects, as well as items related to the history of the university. Other valuable holdings include Harlem Renaissance paintings.
