Farmville High School Auditorium

This circa 1951 photograph shows the two-tiered auditorium with fixed seats at the all-white Farmville High School. This photograph was among the images entered by the plaintiffs in the landmark civil rights case Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County to demonstrate visually how unequal the facilities were when comparing the all-white public high school to the all-Black Robert Russa Moton High School in Farmville.
