The Moton Museum is pleased to present this years Rev. L. Francis Griffin Day Observance. Rev. Griffin was known locally and nationally as the “fighting preacher,” a civil rights advocate who helped to led the fight for civil rights in education and was a voice of opposition to the decision by Prince Edward County to close the public schools rather than integrate. This year’s Reverend L. Francis Griffin Day Observance will feature a panel discussion with members of the Griffin Family. Members of the Griffin Family will reflect upon the legacy of their father Rev. L. Francis Griffin Sr. and what that legacy has means for our community and the civil rights movement broadly.
