W. Hale Thompson Mural Unveiled

On Saturday, the City unveiled its latest mural in the Southeast Community, this one honoring the late Civil Rights Activist W. Hale Thompson. Thompson was instrumental in integrating Newport News public libraries, and the mural, by Newport News native Asa Jackson, adorns the side of Esquire Barber Shop near the corner of Jefferson Avenue and 25th Street, the former home of Thompson’s law office.
