Barbara Johns Day Zoom Webinars

April 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join the Moton Museum in celebrating Barbara Johns Day with two free learning opportunities. Virginia Studies (4th-6th graders) can engage with the museum at 10:00am during our first webinar. This presentation will introduce them to Barbara Johns and her legacy with the 1951 student walkout that led to Prince Edward County being involved in the 1954 Brown v. Board Supreme Court case.

Civics, US History, and US Government (7th-12th graders) students can learn about Barbara Johns and the political changes that happened after 1951 student strike at 1:00pm. This presentation begins with the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case to help explain how Jim Crow laws impacted the students in Prince Edward County and why they were inspired to walk out on April 23, 1951. The presentation will go through the reopening of the Prince Edward County Public Schools in 1964.
