The History of Newsome Park

Newsome Park, situated in Newport News, Virginia, holds historical significance as affordable, segregated housing established during the Great Depression for African Americans. Amidst a segregated city, the neighborhood thrived as a refuge for black migrants, notably during World War II, attracting diverse residents, including NASA employees and shipyard workers. Despite segregation’s challenges, residents formed a tight-knit community marked by solidarity.

Beyond residential importance, Newsome Park symbolizes economic and cultural self-sufficiency. Faced with legal segregation, the community created its own institutions, including a community center, sports facilities, and a shopping center with essential services.

Named after J. Thomas Newsome, a pioneering black attorney and civic leader, the community reflects resilience and unity. Newsome Park Strategies, our company, draws inspiration from this legacy. Committed to addressing Minority and Rural Health disparities, we aim to bring impactful solutions to community health, honoring the strength that emerges when a community unites to overcome challenges.
