Museum Seeking Help in Contacting Remaining Davis vs. Prince Edward Plaintiffs

Group photo of several plaintiffs in the 1951 Davis v. Prince Edward case honored at the celebration on April 22, 2011.

As part of our celebration of the 60th anniversary of the student strike at Robert Russa Moton High School, we were very happy to present commemorative gifts to each of the plaintiffs in the Davis v. Prince Edward case who were able to attend our special event in April. We would still like to honor each of the plaintiffs and are seeking help in reaching a number of individuals or their families that we have not yet contacted. Our goal is to present or send a miniature chalkboard personalized with each individual’s name to commemorate the courage shown by each during the Robert Russa Moton High School strike in 1951, and the contribution they made to education in Virginia and across the country. Please review the updated list below and share this article with your contacts to help us get in touch with as many of these honorees or their family members as possible.

We appreciate any help you can provide. If you have information on an individual, or would like more information, please contact Patrice Carter of the Robert Russa Moton Museum at (434) 315-8775, ext. 3 or by email at [email protected].
