Civil Rights in Virginia

Title

Civil Rights in Virginia

Subject

Powerpoint used in Louisa County Classrooms to present the Civil Rights Struggle

Description

The PDF file to the right is based upon a powerpoint presentation funded by Dominion Virginia Power. The presentation uses photos, many from the Louisa County Historical Society archives, to tell the story of Civil Rights from the end of the Civil War through 1970.

Materials focus on the experiences of school children in Louisa County and Central Virginia during segregation. Included are comparisons between white and black teacher salaries and other figures taken from County School District records.

Shown in the photo are 1941 Louisa Training School graduates Eva Founatin (left) and Margaret Hughes. Photo courtesy of Mrs. Sarah Fountain Winston.
