South Hampton Roads Bar Association

Initially called the Tidewater Bar Association, the South Hampton Roads Bar Association (SHRBA) was established in 1923 following the region’s hosting of the National Negro Bar Association’s annual meeting.  As one of the oldest African-American bar associations in Virginia, the South Hampton Roads Bar Association has worked hard to promote the advancement of African Americans within Virginia’s legal profession.  In the modern era, the focus of the South Hampton Roads Bar Association has shifted to a more general goal of supporting racial equality within the legal community in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
