The Armstrong Walker Football Classic Legacy Project has returned to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia with a new exhibit that will run until Nov. 22. During the exhibit visitors will view artifacts that help explore the history of the sports rivalry between Maggie L. Walker High School and Armstrong High School.
Photos, films and other memorabilia on display were donated or are on loan from the two schools and their alumni. The archives commemorate the 40-year history of the Armstrong Walker Football Classic game that has been reborn as a community celebration and school showcase.
“As we continue to build on this legacy, the Armstrong Walker Football Classic Legacy Project team is excited to partner again with the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia to be able to share these priceless pieces of our history,” AWFCLP President Greta Randolph said in a statement.
