RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – It was a big night for the Armstrong High School class of 1962.

Classmates celebrated their fiftieth reunion at the Wyndham Hotel in East Richmond Friday.

Armstrong, one of the city's most historic schools, was founded in 1865.

It was an all black school when the class graduated – and would not be integrated for another nine years.
