Virginia Students Protest Segregated Schools
April 23, 1951
Students attending Moton High School, Prince Edward County, Virginia led a walk out to protest separate and unequal school facilities. NAACP attorneys represented the students as they spearheaded the challenge to the system of segregated schools in Virginia. This case , along with others, helped to propel the passing of the 1954 landmark desegration law in the United States. http://www.library.vcu.edu/jbc/speccoll/pec01.html
