Auditorium/Athletic Facility at the Robert Russa Moton High School

An unidentified group gathers on folding chairs in the room that served jointly as an auditorium and as a makeshift athletic facility (note the basketball hoop on the far wall) in the all-Black Robert Russa Moton 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 the inferior facilities at the all-Black public school when compared to the all-white Farmville High School.
