Brown v. Board: From Students on Strike to Massive Resistance in Farmville, VA
Please join us for the second webinar in our Brown v. Board webinar series, which will tell the story of the Robert Russa Moton School in Farmville, Virginia. The webinar will feature Cameron Patterson, Executive Director of the Robert Russa Moton Museum and and Reverend J. Samuel Williams, Moton Student Striker and Civil Rights Leader.

One of the most significant landmark cases in the history of the United States, the 1954 Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education compiled cases from five communities across the South, East, and Midwest to desegregate American schools. Late last year, the National Trust identified work related to expanding the narrative surrounding Brown v. Board as one of our National Treasures.

As part of the work of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, we will continue to broaden our understanding of Brown v. Board of Education through a webinar series that will highlight the people, places, and stories from each of the states involved in the landmark case.

In addition to sharing some history about the case, this session will also include updates on the work to preserve and tell the full story of Brown v. Board.
