Virtual Tour of the Robert Russa Moton Museum

This is a virtual tour of the Robert Russa Moton Museum in Farmville, a museum housed in the former all-Black high school of the same name in Prince Edward County. The museum opened on April 23, 2001, on the fiftieth anniversary of a student-led strike protesting the inferior facilities and educational opportunities then available at the segregated high school. The museum focuses on civil rights and education.
