Exterior of the All-White Farmville High School

A circa 1951 photograph shows the substantial multistory brick exterior of the all-white Farmville High School. This was one of several photographs entered by the plaintiffs in the landmark civil rights case Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County to demonstrate how much better the facilities were at the all-white school compared to conditions at the all-Black Robert Russa Moton High School in Farmville.
