graphic with name of event Moton Museum Visit

 

The Moton Museum will be visiting the Timbrook Library in an outreach opportunity for families. This interaction is geared for elementary schoolers, but all grade levels are invited.

The Moton School Story can be told from many different perspectives. This version of the Moton School Story uses primary sources to inform about Moton’s history and that of the April 23, 1951 student-led strike when students walked out of school protesting inadequate educational facilities. The Moton School Story is a story of how the “Separate but Equal” Supreme Court decision impacted the Prince Edward County community and the story of those that resisted “Separate but Equal.”
