This historical exhibition honors the legacy, courage and strength of the men and women of the Minute Men Task Force. The Minute Men were a group of community members who formed in 1994 in the wake of attacks on African-American girls and women in the East End of Newport News. The Minute Men walked children to and from bus stops, encouraged increased awareness of safety in neighborhoods, and patrolled the streets in a distinctive yellow van. As we continue to explore ways to improve safety in our community, we invite you to learn about this initiative and its ongoing impact in Newport News. Suggested donation $2.
