Location: Portsmouth Colored Community Library Museum

Visitors to this historic building will learn how Portsmouth’s African American community worked together to provide access to library services, literacy, and information in the era of segregation. From the early 20th century onward, Portsmouth offered library services to whites, but not black residents. This mirrored conditions in the business community of that time, when lingering Jim Crow laws meant that businesses generally served only whites OR blacks.
