Social Center of the South: The Past and Present of the Historic Hampton House
Once marketed as the "Social Center the South," the Hampton House was a favorite gathering place for African Americans during the days of segregation. Some of the most influential activists, athletes, and entertainers of the period visited and performed at the Hampton House. The exhibit Social Center of the South: The Past and Present of the Historic Hampton House tells the story of the Hampton House from its heyday in the 1950s and 60s, through its decline in the 70s, to its eventual rebirth 40 years later as a community cultural center. The exhibit was produced by participants of the Historic Hampton House’s new music and history mentorship program, the Brownsville Unity Music Project, with generous support from Florida International University, The Children’s Trust, James S. and John L. Knight Foundation, and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Historical Resources.
