Ely to Griffin: The Forgotten Black History of Farmville

February 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Moton Museum joins with the Longwood University Office of Multicultural Affairs for a Town Hall discussion regarding the often overlooked and forgotten Black History of Farmville and Prince Edward County. Our local black history is rich and we will seek to elevate some of those stories during this conversation.

Black History Month programming sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs at Longwood explores the people, moments, and movements that have helped to shape and continue to shape Black History & Culture within our communities, across the Commonwealth, and across the Country.
