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.
The South Hampton Roads Bar Association is also dedicated to fostering collegiality among its members. Members are presented with the opportunity to socialize with one another at the SHRBA’s social events, including the annual picnic and the annual holiday party. The South Hampton Roads Bar Association also ensures that its members stay connected with the organization by holding monthly general bar meetings that are open to all of its members.
