Unmasking Hampton Roads is a three-part learning series designed to help residents of the region take off their masks, be candid with each other about race and racism, and work together to make our communities more equitable and inclusive spaces for everyone.
The series is inspired by the poem “We Wear the Mask” by African American writer and poet Paul Laurence Dunbar.
#UnmaskingHR took place in Hampton Roads twice in the fall of 2019:
- Oct. 10, Oct. 17 and Oct. 19 – Norfolk and Virginia Beach
- Nov. 14, Nov. 21 and Nov. 23 – Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Suffolk
