Moton 2011: The Permanent Exhibit

Planning for permanent exhibitions and a website examining the 1951 student protest at the Robert Russa Moton High School in Prince Edward County and the broader history of public school desegregation in Virginia.

Moton 2011 is the Robert Russa Moton Museum’s plan to install a series of permanent exhibit galleries within the auditorium and five classrooms of the former R. R. Moton High School which will chronicle Prince Edward County, Virginia’s thirteen-year struggle for Civil Rights in Education. The galleries will be dedicated in 2011 in observance of the 60th anniversary of the April 23, 1951 Moton student strike which precipitated the County’s Civil Rights Era saga.
